Fast Food Report Card
There’s a new report card out for fast food restaurants—and many got a failing grade. A coalition of health and environmental groups took a close look at what exactly is in the meat and poultry sold at several popular chains. The “Chain Reaction” report by the Natural Resources Defense Council, Friends of the Earth, and Public Health Groups found very few restaurant chains have a policy limiting antibiotic use in their meat and poultry supply. Only two top chains received an “A” grade on their policies—Panera Bread and Chipotle. Both report serving the majority of their meat from animals raised without regular antibiotic use. Chick-Fil-A got a “B” grade. The chain is making a commitment to a “No Antibiotics Ever” policy.
