Keep Antibiotics Working (KAW)

Public health, consumer, and other advocacy groups sent a letter to T.G.I. Friday’s® congratulating the Dallas, Texas-based restaurant chain for its recent decision to serve beef burgers raised without the routine feeding of antibiotics to healthy cattle.

The decision supports a resolution adopted by the American Medical Association in June opposing the use in healthy animals of antibiotics that also are used to treat human disease. In addition, the American Public Health Association and World Health Organization have passed similar resolutions and the European Union has banned routine feeding of most antibiotics to healthy animals.
