Somebody must have heard Wyatt:
Couple of weeks ago, Wyatt Prescott, Executive Director of the Idaho Cattlemen's Association, was complaining about the Chipotle Mexican Grill restaurant chain: "They just continue to make decisions that are not ag-friendly. They began serving a vegan menu item which throws it into the animal ag industry's face. They are facts are completely inaccurate. They do not recognize the sustainable elements that using antibiotics produce so our feedlots and for the entire industry and world are key players that continue our ability to feed our growing population."
Well somebody from Chipotle must've heard Wyatt because now Chipotle Considers Using Antibiotic-Treated Beef. Chipotle Mexican Grill is reviewing a change to start using beef that has been treated with antibiotics, but said no decision has yet been made on the matter. The Denver-based chain stressed in a press release Tuesday that its beef, chicken and pork continues to come from animals that are not given antibiotics or added hormones whenever possible; however, it said it's considering tweaking its "responsibly raised" meat standards to allow meat from animals that have been given antibiotics to treat illnesses.
