NRDC Praises Perdue, Subway For Antibiotics Policies

February 26, 2016: 12:00 AM EST
The Natural Resources Defense Council said it was pleased to find that both chicken producer Perdue Farms and sandwich shop chain Subway have fully committed to eliminating antibiotics. According to the NRDC, Perdue “leads the chicken industry’s welcome conversion toward antibiotics stewardship.” Two-thirds of the company’s chickens, and more than half of its turkeys, are now raised without antibiotics. The NRDC is seeking wider adoption of third-party verification programs that assure consumers that companies are transparent about their stewardship claims. Third-party verification would also build confidence that animals raised without antibiotics are living in “high welfare conditions.”
