AMERICANS ARE UNDER THREAT FROM ANTIBIOTIC-RESISTANT SUPERBUGS, making us vulnerable to common, once treatable infections. Unfortunately, a remarkable 80 percent of antibiotics in the U.S. are used not by humans, but by the meat and poultry industries so factory farm animals can grow faster and survive crowded and unsanitary conditions.

This is creating superbugs and humans are exposed in a number of ways, including when we handle or eat undercooked meat. Our life-saving drugs are becoming less effective when we really need them. Unfortunately, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration has refused to take meaningful action to restrict the use of unnecessary antibiotics in livestock production.

But consumers can still do something to make change. We can be the catalysts to turn the tide on this public health crisis. We can show our support for companies that don’t take our health for granted, and we are asking grocery stores to join us by choosing to only sell meat raised without antibiotics.

We’re calling on Trader Joe’s to only source their meat from animals raised without antibiotics. As one of the most progressive national retailers, Trader Joe’s has already demonstrated care for their customers’ health by saying no to GMOs, artificial colors and trans fats in the products they sell. Trader Joe’s can also be a leader by helping move the livestock industry in the right direction.
