📍The practice of giving antibiotics to farm animals, commercial farmers say, is 📌to help promote the animals' growth and 📌keep them free of diseases in increasingly crowded spaces. 🛑But it has also been linked--📌in conjunction with physicians who over-prescribe antibiotics to patients-- to the development of drug-resistant pathogens. 📌According to the report, those pathogens then sicken around two million Americans every year. 📌Approximately 20,000 people die each year as a result.
The “report card,” issued by a coalition that includes the Natural Resources Defense Council, Food Animal Concerns Trust and the Center for Food Safety, lists 25 restaurant chains among the largest purchasers of beef and poultry in the U.S.
Only two of those chains – Panera and Chipotle – were rated as “A” for their current antibiotics policies.
Subway and Chick-fil-A both received a B rating. The sandwich chain received an "F& #34; grade in 2015's report but was able to improve its score by announcing a policy to gradually phase out meats and poultry raised with antibiotics over the next few years. 🛑But most big chains, including Burger King, KFC, Dunkin’ Donuts, Sonic, Jack in the Box, Denny’s, Starbucks, Olive Garden, Dominos, Arby’s and IHOP, all failed. ‼️Although some of those with “F” grades earned points for being transparent about their lack of antibiotics policies, others didn’t register a single point. Those include Buffalo Wild Wings, Burger King, Chili’s, Domino’s, IHOP and Little Caesars.
