Big Ag's overuse of antibiotics has serious consequences
Every year, 2 million Americans get sick and 23,000 die from antibiotic-resistant infections. But despite warnings from health experts, factory farms are overusing our life-saving medicines by giving them to animals when they aren't even sick -- helping to create antibiotic-resistant bacteria.
For factory farms to change their practices, we need big restaurant chains to pressure them into taking action. That's why we're asking KFC to stop selling meat raised on routine antibiotics.
In the last year, we've helped convince McDonald's and Subway to take steps to protect our antibiotics. Now it's KFC's turn.
Call on them to take action.
