A shocking 80 percent of the antibiotics sold in the U.S. go to factory farms, helping animals grow faster and endure inhumane conditions. This overuse of antibiotics breeds antibiotic-resistant bacteria, commonly referred to as "superbugs," which can have deadly consequences. Every year, 2 million people contract an antibiotic-resistant infection, and 90,000 of them die.The FDA, under intense pressure from giant agribusiness, has done little to protect consumers. That's why we're going straight to the retailers who sell our food and asking Trader Joe's to commit to antibiotic-free meat. Will you join us by signing our petition today?We will deliver your signature, along with the signatures of thousands of other concerned consumers, to Trader Joe's headquarters later this month.
Please commit to selling antibiotic-free meat
Petition to Trader Joe's:
I urge you to source and sell only meat and poultry raised without antibiotics in all your Trader Joe's stores. The widespread use of antibiotics in food animals contributes to the spread of deadly, antibiotic-resistant 'superbugs' in humans. We must preserve our antibiotics, and your leadership could begin to change the priorities for our nation's livestock producers. Thank you!
