McDonald's Realizes Consumers Don't Want Meat Raised With Antibiotics, But Voluntary Measures Aren't Enough
WASHINGTON - Statement from Wenonah Hauter, Executive Director, Food & Water Watch
"We’re glad to hear McDonald's realizes the public doesn’t want food from factory farms that overuse antibiotics. But voluntary measures are not enough. It’s past time for the FDA to force the meat industry to eliminate its use of harmful antibiotics though enforceable, non-voluntary regulation."
