McDonald’s investors take a bold turn, asks to cut antibiotics from meat products

Several other McDonald\'s shareholders are planning to file similar proposals to ban antibiotics, according to the Interfaith Center on Corporate Responsibility, which is leading a campaign against McDonald\'s use of antibiotics.

McDonald’s, the top most global burger chain’s investors and share holders are asking the company to cut antibiotics from its meat products.

The shareholder has also asked the burger chain to stop buying any meat from animals raised with antibiotics vital to fighting human infections.

The move from the Congregation of Benedictine Sisters of Boerne, Texas, comes amid growing concern from public health experts that the overuse of such drugs is contributing to rising numbers of life-threatening human infections from antibiotic-resistant bacteria dubbed "superbugs."

The sisters withdrew a similar shareholder resolution shortly after McDonald's USA announced in March that within two years it would phase out chicken produced with antibiotics important to human health, reported Reuters.

Several other McDonald's shareholders are planning to file similar proposals to ban antibiotics, according to the Interfaith Center on Corporate Responsibility, which is leading a campaign against McDonald's use of antibiotics.

That's a bold request by the shareholders for the burger chain that feeds more than 69 million people every day, according to McDonald’s report.
