Ask Subway for Meat Raised without Routine Antibiotics

Tell Subway CEO Fred DeLuca and President Suzanne Greco to disclose its antibiotic use policies and commit to sourcing only meat and poultry produced without the routine use of antibiotics.

Livestock producers often use antibiotics routinely to make animals grow faster or help them survive crowded, stressful, unsanitary confinement conditions. As a result, some bacteria become resistant to the antibiotics, contributing to rising rates of antibiotic resistant bacteria — “superbugs” — that threaten our health and communities. Overuse of antibiotics by both humans and food animals contributes to this problem, but 70 percent of all medically-important antibiotics sold in the U.S. are for use in food animals, making this industry a critical part of the problem. It is estimated that global antibiotic use in livestock will rise by 67 percent by 2030.

Unfortunately, Subway, the largest restaurant chain in the world, has not revealed its policies on antibiotics, even while competitors like McDonald's, Chik-fil-A, Chipotle and others have made public commitments to reduce antibiotic use. Tell Subway CEO Fred DeLuca and President Suzanne Greco to disclose its antibiotic use policies and commit to sourcing only meat and poultry produced without the routine use of antibiotics.
