A Good Idea From Fast Food Chains

The parent company of KFC said it will stop buying chicken that is raised using antibiotics that are important to human medicine.
The announcement by the giant chicken chain came after years of pressure from food safety and consumer advocacy groups, and two years after other food companies such as McDonald’s, Chick-fil-A, Pizza Hut and Taco Bell made similar pledges to phase out the use of products from animals treated with the antibiotics — a practise linked to the rise of “super bug” pathogens that are resistant to multiple drugs.
