No more beef with antibiotics at the Big Mac. McDonald’s, one of the biggest global fast-food brands, has launched a program to eliminate in four years antibiotics from the beef it uses. The global fast-food chain has over 36,000 stores in more than 100 countries. And it has a range of popular products like Big Mac and Quarterpounder that use animal products.
Now, McDonald’s has taken a cue from a World Health Organization warning about increasing human drug resistance because of dietary intake of antibiotics. As the first step, McDonald’s has sought the details of antibiotics its beef suppliers from 10 nations use.
