Antibiotics Announcement

April 28, 2015

We are striving to eliminate the use of human antibiotics from our U.S. broiler* chicken flocks by the end of September 2017. We will report annually on our progress, beginning with our fiscal 2015 Sustainability Report.

We have already stopped using all antibiotics in our 35 broiler hatcheries, require a veterinary prescription for antibiotics used on broiler farms and have reduced human antibiotics used to treat broiler chickens by more than 80 percent since 2011.

* Broilers are chickens raised for meat.
