Hold the Antibiotics McDonalds

Roughly 70% of medically important antibiotics sold in the U.S. are for livestock and poultry. These antibiotics are often given to animals that aren't sick, breeding superbugs that can infect people with illnesses that today's medicine can't cure.

After McDonald's announced it would purchase only chicken raised without human antibiotics, Subway and KFC joined them. McDonald's can change the marketplace for beef and pork raised without misusing antibiotics as well.

Will you tell McDonald's to hold the antibiotics?
