Investors Demand McDonald’s Ban The Use Of Antibiotics In Its Meat

By Julie Fidler for Infowars

Just days after McDonald’s corporation said it will shift to using cage-free eggsover the next decade, investors have started pressuring the fast-food chain to remove antibiotics from all of its meat.

A shareholder proposal was filed by the Congregation of Benedictine Sisters in Boerne, Texas, asking McDonald’s to ban all of its meat suppliers from using antibiotics on animals to make them grow, and to prevent disease. The meat suppliers would still be permitted to use antibiotics on sick animals, however.

In March, McDonald’s vowed to reduce the amount of drugs used in its chickens, but did not extend the change to pork and beef products. The Sisters say this is a double-standard.
