McDonald’s has new antibiotic plan for beef
December 12, 2018 By Julie Harker Filed Under: Livestock, News
One of the world’s largest restaurants plans to source most of its beef from cattle that have not been treated with “medically important” antibiotics. Details of McDonald’s plan are posted on its website with the target at the end of 2020.

U.S. beef is not allowed into the food chain if antibiotic residues are present.
