Chain Reaction V: How Top Restaurants Rate on Reducing Antibiotic Use in Their Beef Supplies

The fifth annual Chain Reaction report rates the top 25 restaurants on their antibiotics policies and practices for beef.  Most fast food chains in the United States continue to sell beef produced with routine antibiotic use, earning them poor grades in the report.  In addition to grading each restaurant chain, the report singles out companies for significant progress, leadership and foot-dragging when it comes to adopting more responsible antibiotics policies.

In addition to Consumer Reports, the Chain Reaction V report was produced by NRDC, the Antibiotic Resistance Action Center at Milken Institute School of Public Health at the George Washington University, Food Animal Concerns Trust, U.S. PIRG Education Fund and Center for Food Safety.
