The CDC reports it's important to avoid "unnecessary use of antibiotics" in agriculture to slow antibiotic resistance that can result in "superbugs" in humans.
While some fast-food establishments have eliminated antibiotics entirely, 'Eat This, Not That!' reports that these 5 restaurants continue to use the meat of antibiotic-treated animals.
1. Five Guys: In 2018, the burger chain received an "F" in Consumer Reports' annual Chain Reaction report regarding its antibiotics policies.
2. Dairy Queen: While the restaurant limits antibiotics in its chicken supply, it does not publicly hold
beef or pork to the same standards.
3. Taco Bell: With similar policies as Dairy Queen, Taco Bell received a "D" in the 2021 Chain Reaction report.
4. Burger King: Like the two named before it, Burger King has minimal antibiotics policies when it comes to chicken, but not beef or pork.
5. Domino's: The world's largest pizza chain also follows suit with its chicken vs. beef and pork policies. However, the chain announced its intention to switch to antibiotic-free beef and pork eventually, but it hasn't given a more specific time frame.
