Reduction of Antibiotics
The non-therapeutic use of antibiotics in animal production is a growing public health concern because it decreases the effectiveness of antibiotics to treat diseases in humans.
Therefore, we only serve chicken and turkey that has been produced with restricted use of these drugs, especially as a growth additive in feed. This policy may exclude some processed products. Our contracted supplies are required to provide products which adhere to specific criteria developed in partnership with the Environmental Defense Fund.
