Livestock and poultry producers routinely feed antibiotics to animals to boost growth rates or counteract unhygienic living conditions. This creates antibiotic-resistant bacteria transmitted to humans through water, soil, animal contact, or food we eat.

Buy all foods locally and meat should be only purchased if grown in a "free-range" drug free environment.

All signed and noted. Thanks, Tom, I hope they pay attention and removed the antibiotics. It's is just more unnecessary stuff we must digest.

maybe it's the other way round .
i don't accept antibiotics at all for animals especially nor humans -antibiotics makes it worse in the end .....any person or animal who has done antibiotics knows eventually nothing works , & at that point either go to hospital or radically change diet ( only healthy veg etc - no more sugar, chocs, coffee, white flour , meat , etc etc etc). exercise. good vibes.
antibiotics is poisonous , killer, mafia syndicate set-up.

signed and noted. WE are already in a place that so many infections and illnesses have mutated and are anti-biotic resistant. This is a ridiculous practice that needs to end.

Well, it appears that I am in good company. I don't live in the "targeted area" either. But, we grown a helluva lot of beef here in TX. Therefore, this is ludicrous that it is not country or world wide.
