It’s a growing public health crisis: The overuse of medically important antibiotics — both in people, and also on livestock on factory farms. This practice promotes the rise of deadly antibiotic-resistant “superbugs” that are leading to difficult or impossible to treat infections that kill over 160,000 people in the United States every year — and millions worldwide.
McDonald’s has committed to reducing the use of antibiotics in its beef supplies, and as the third largest burger chain in the U.S., it’s time for Wendy’s to follow McDonald’s lead. Tell the CEO of Wendy’s to do its part in the fight to preserve effective antibiotics and commit to serving only beef raised without the routine use of antibiotics.
Yes, eating less meat is the best way to protect our planet and our health. But we can also demand that meat be produced with more sustainable practices. Less meat, better meat, healthier future.
So, please send your message telling Wendy’s CEO to take action to protect our antibiotics.
Stop the overuse of antibiotics. Tell Wendy’s to do its part to protect human health and commit to serving only beef raised without the routine use of medically important antibiotics.
Wendy's CEO Todd Penegor
Commit Wendy’s to ending routine antibiotic use in its beef supplies
