#AntibioticsOfftheMenu

This World Consumer Rights Day we are calling on McDonald’s, KFC and Subway to make global time bound commitments to stop serving meat from animals routinely given antibiotics used in human medicine. 

Antibiotic resistance is one of the biggest threats to global health facing us today. Around half of the antibiotics produced globally are used in agriculture, with much of this being used to make animals grow faster and to prevent rather than treat disease. Along with addressing overconsumption of antibiotics in human medicine and promoting the development of new drugs, changes in farming practices are urgently needed. 

Multinational restaurant chains with global supply networks are in a strong position to drive changes faster than legislation alone. McDonald’s and Subway have already made commitments in North America; unfortunately, this isn’t enough. The scale and reach of the problem demand worldwide action, which is why a global, timebound commitment is needed. Join us in calling on McDonalds, Subway and KFC to act globally to get #AntibioticsOfftheMenu.
