Abstract

Various chemicals are added to commercially produced animal feed for nutritional and therapeutic purposes (1). These include vitamins, hormones, antibiotics, antioxidants, growth promoters, minerals and metals (1, 2). Cases of sensitization to animal feed additives have been described, additives being quite a frequent source of occupational contact dermatitis in animal feed workers (1-7).
