"McDonald's, Walmart, Tyson Foods and others have already announced plans to restrict or phase out antibiotic use in chickens."

I hope they manage to eliminate the mass dosing of healthy animals while still allowing the occasionally medically necessary treatment of individual animals.

Farmers must be allowed to treat animals that may have gotten an infection through normal living (like happens to any of us), so zero tolerance is NOT acceptable. I hope that common sense will prevail.

How about doing the world a favour and cutting out the beef in the beef and replacing it with healthier more earth friendly veggie protien?

Like the Impossible Burger:

Just people don't expect to pay at fast-food prices. Want a better burger? Pay more for what it's worth

So it's not 100% beef: there are antibiotics in there too.
