 Antibiotics Plan...

Review You can ask your suppliers for information they have about the use of antibiotics in the production of the meat you buy.

Possible Policy Statement

Where feasible all our meat products will be purchased from livestock where use of antibiotics is restricted.

McDonald's has a new policy that seeks to reduce the antibiotics used by its meat suppliers (More from 'Keep Antibiotics Working'). "No antibiotics may be mixed in the animals' feed, unless they are to treat a specific illness under the supervision of a veterinarian. No other form of preventive medication is allowed."

Suggested Indicators

Routine use of antibiotics.
Use of antibiotics as growth promoters in feedstuff.
