Abstract: A critical, detailed review of all available data useful in assessing the potential hazards to health posed by the presence of selected veterinary drug residues in foods consumed by humans. Separate monographs are presented for one b-adrenoceptor-blocking agent (carazolol), three anthelminthic agents (febantel, fenbendazole, and oxfendazole), two antimicrobial agents (spiramycin and tylosin), and three tranquillizing agents (azaperone, chlorpromazine, and propionylpromazine). Evaluations draw upon many unpublished proprietary reports voluntarily submitted by drug manufacturers as well as findings from the published literature. For tylosin, aza-perone, chlorpromazine, and propionylpromazine, no acceptable daily intakes could be established due to insufficiencies in available toxicological data. The experts further recommended that chlorpromazine should not be used in food-producing animals
