What's Next For Antibiotics in Food Animals?


Antibiotics used while raising beef, poultry, and swine, has some scientists concerned. What should consumers know? Consumers are making their voice heard through new methods (ex, Chicago Public Schools buying antibiotic free chicken). Scientist continue to raise the alarm about the over use of antibiotics (ex, Union of Concerned Scientists petitions to FDA). And farmers and ranchers question the validity of stopping the prophylactic uses of antibiotics in food animals (ex, studies comparing US farm operations with antibiotic use with EU operations with no antibiotic use see no changes in antibiotic resistance).

Will Antibiotic-free Poultry Become The Norm?

Just after the 2011 Antibiotic Use In Food Animals conference held in Chicago, IL, the Chicago Public Schools began serving local chicken raised without antibiotics to students in 473 schools.
"As the third largest school district in the nation, Chicago has a big voice," said Laura Stanley, Learning Lab manager for School Food FOCUS. "It's in a position to catalyze change in the school food market nationwide."
The poultry will be raised by Miller Amish Country Poultry of Orland, Indiana, and delivery is being supported by Whole Foods Market.
