William Proxmire, D-Wis., criticized the Food and Drug Administration today for failure to 'ollow up on French studies indicating a possible health hazard from the use of a drug to fatten beef cattle. FDA has prohibited the use of the cancer-causing drug, diethylstilbeslrol (DBS), in animal feed, but it slill can be used as an ear implant pending completion of Agriculture Department studies to delect resi' dues in animal tissue. Proxmire said French studies in 1971 and 1972 indicated that DF,S-implanted calf flesh affected the reproductive cycle in adult female rals. Yet. he said, FDA chose not o make any comparative stud- es because implant restruc- tions are more stringent in this country.
