The problem is that antibiotic overuse breeds drug-resistant superbugs that can move from animals to people in numerous ways, including via the meat we eat.

I applaud the effort to get antibiotics out of the food supply. Until that happens the best solution is for people to buy poultry that does not use them.

I've never understood why people get so worked up about animals with antibiotics. Everybody seems to take every pill imaginable if the doctor says to take them and if they don't get any they complain till they get them....me I'll take healthy animals over sick any day of the week & twice on Sunday....
