Restaurants like KFC are sourcing their meat from factory farms. These farms can give KFC the cheapest price for their chicken -- but it comes at a steep price to U.S. consumers. Many factory farms use and abuse antibiotics. They use these drugs on healthy animals to prevent a disease outbreak in the crowded and often squalid conditions of the factory farms.
Here’s why this is so dangerous: 70 percent of the most important antibiotics — the ones we need to survive deadly illnesses — are used on animals instead of people in the U.S.
This is about our public health, and KFC needs to change. Will you send a message right now to KFC CEO Roger Eaton asking him to stop serving chicken raised with antibiotics?
Dear Mr. Eaton,
