Tyson Foods, the largest US poultry producer, announced Tuesday that it plans to eliminate human antibiotics from its broiler chickens in US farms by late 2017. The move comes after an increasing number of fast food chains, including Chik-Fil-A and McDonald's, have moved to eliminate chickens fed with human antibiotics from their menus, and a key Tyson competitor Purdue also moved to end general use of the drugs on poultry flocks. Tyson said it had already halted the use of all antibiotics in its 35 broiler hatcheries, and had cut back the use of human antibiotics for treating broiler chickens by 80 percent since 2011. Tyson said it will "strive" to bring the use on broiler chickens down to zero by September 2017, and that is working with farmers to cut the use of human antibiotics on cows, pigs and turkeys as well.
