Cargill To Sell Only Turkeys Raised Without Growth-Spurring Antibiotics

July 15, 2014: 12:00 AM EST
Cargill says consumer research coupled with federal government initiatives have led it to source and sell only turkeys that were raised without antibiotics. The company worked with the USDA on developing a verification plan that ensures that turkeys it buys from independent farms were not given antibiotics to spur growth. Last year, the FDA announced a three-year plan to phase out the use of antibiotics used to improve growth or feed efficiency in livestock and poultry.  “Ending the use of antibiotics to promote growth in turkeys is an important step that provides consumers with nutritious and affordable options,” a Cargill executive said.
