Investors Tell Major Food Chains to Cut Antibiotics Out of Meat

McDonald’s, Wendy’s, Domino’s, Chili’s, Olive Garden, Burger King, Tim Hortons, KFC, Pizza Hut, and Taco Bell

A pool of investors who manage a collective $1 trillion want major restaurant chains to lay out their plans for pulling antibiotics out of their meat supply.

The Farm Animal Investment Risk & Return (FAIRR), an initiative of Coller Capital that combines 53 other investment groups, announced this week they’ve sent letters to some of the biggest restaurant chains in the U.S. and the U.K.

The chains include McDonald’s, Wendy’s, Domino’s, Chili’s, Olive Garden, Burger King, Tim Hortons, KFC, Pizza Hut, and Taco Bell, among others.

Several of the companies, including McDonald’s and Domino’s Pizza, told The Guardian they have already begun to develop policies for tackling antibiotic use on farms.
