Grade A:

By removing antibiotics from their poultry, pork and beef, Chipotle Mexican Grill and Panera Bread received an A for their policies on antibiotics. Out of the 25 largest American fast food chains, these two restaurants were the only ones who received this top grade.

 

The Sign of Progress:

KFC, a fried chicken hot spot, was named the most improved restaurant in their policies on antibiotics as they started at an F last year and climbed to a B- this year. They have set out to remove all harmful antibiotics from their meat products by the end of 2018.

 

The Danger of Domino’s: 

The popular pizza chain Domino’s has received an F for their policies on antibiotics, which have been extremely harmful to many Americans’ health. The U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and World Health Organization believe that approximately 2 million Americans have suffered infections and around 23,000 die every year as a result of antibiotic related illnesses.
