The consumer and public health advocacy organization WashPIRG Foundation is calling on McDonald’s to commit to a concrete timeline to phase out routinely using medically-important antibiotics in its beef and pork supply chains. The WashPIRG Foundation is singling out the iconic fast food company because McDonald’s has an outsized influence as the biggest purchaser of beef in the United States, and it has a vague long-term antibiotics plan. Health experts, including the World Health Organization and American Academy of Pediatrics, warn that the routine use of antibiotics on animals that aren’t sick fuels drug-resistant bacteria, a major health threat to humans.
“Protecting antibiotics requires action, not reaction. If we don’t act now to preserve the effectiveness of these medicines, we’ll face a world in which common infections once again kill” said Elise Orlick, Director of WashPIRG Foundation. “The Big Mac can make a big dent in stopping the misuse of antibiotics in our food system.”
“We are seeing an increasing number of patients with multi-drug resistant infections, which are difficult to treat due to limited antibiotic options,” said Dr. Afrah Sait MD, Infectious Disease Fellow at Tufts Medical Center. “In order to prevent bacteria from becoming resistant and ensure our antibiotics remain effective for patients who need them, it is critical for all of us to carefully consider when and how antibiotics are used and employ them only when absolutely necessary for saving lives.”
As part of the national campaign launch, U.S. PIRG Education Fund has started gathering signatures on a petition urging McDonald’s to take action on its beef and pork supply chains. Nearly 10,000 people have already signed on in support. The message is clear: a commitment from McDonald’s to stop selling beef and pork raised with the routine use of antibiotics will help protect our ability to treat infections and save lives.
McDonald’s recently released a vision for phasing routine antibiotic use out of its entire meat supply chain globally, but it has yet to commit to a timeline for making that vision a reality.
To McDonald’s credit, the company stopped serving chicken raised with medically-important antibiotics in 2016, ahead of schedule. At the time, consumer and health advocates, including WashPIRG Foundation and partners, applauded the company’s actions and influence. Now, 14 of the top 25 restaurant chains in the U.S. have committed to no longer source chicken raised with routine antibiotics, according to the Chain Reaction report.
“We convinced McDonald’s to stop serving chicken raised on life-saving medicines,” noted Orlick. “Now, it’s time for the biggest burger chain in the country to make the same commitment for all the meat they sell. Doing so will help protect doctors’ ability to treat infections and save lives.”
The latest numbers from the Food and Drug Administration show sales of medically-important antibiotics to use on food animals decreased from 2015 through 2016, marking the first decline in year to year sales on record. The decline suggests that restaurants’ new attitude toward antibiotics is making an impact. The FDA data also separates antibiotic sales by species for the first time. It shows significant differences among the percentage of medically-important antibiotics going to chicken, cattle and swine — chicken accounts for only 6% of sales, while beef accounts for 43% and pork for 37%.
Some companies including Chipotle, Subway, Panera Bread, Niman Ranch and Applegate have already moved away from all meat raised with routine antibiotic use, or are in the process of doing so. If McDonald’s, which sells a billion pounds of beef in the U.S. each year and a significant amount of pork, commits to only purchase beef and pork raised without misusing antibiotics, we can take a significant step in ensuring that antibiotics are preserved for treating sick people.
Background info on antibiotic overuse on farms:
Millions of Americans get sick each year with antibiotic resistant infections and at least 23,000 of them die. A recent study estimates that by 2050, drug-resistant bacteria may kill more people worldwide than cancer kills today. Some of the biggest users of antibiotics are large, industrial farms, many of which routinely give antibiotics to livestock and poultry even when animals aren’t sick. Approximately 70% of medically-important antibiotics sold in the U.S. are for use on food animals. To keep antibiotics working, we need to limit their use to situations when animals are sick, or to control verified infectious disease outbreaks on the farm.

Pierce County residents are invited to join the parents, grandparents, and brothers and sisters of University of Puget Sound students for a colorful evening of Polynesian music, dance, and food on Saturday, April 8.
Once again, the Spring Luˋau, presented each year by the Ka Ohana me ke Aloha student club, is coinciding with the college’s Spring Family Weekend—a time when the families of Puget Sound students come from around the country to explore the City of Destiny and the campus that is now home to their college-going offspring.
The Saturday, April 8, Spring Luˋau will include a Hawaiian dinner and an internationally inspired stage show, with traditional dances from Pacific Ocean cultures. The event, now in its 48th year, is one of the biggest celebrations of Polynesian culture in the state, attracting nearly 1,000 people each year.
Dinner will be served from 5 p.m. to 6:20 p.m. in Marshall Hall of Wheelock Student Center, near the N. Alder Street and N. 15th Street entrance to campus. The stage show will begin at 6:30 p.m. in Memorial Fieldhouse, just off the corner of Union Avenue and N. 11th Street. See below for ticket details and a map of campus.
The Ka Ohana me ke Aloha organizers have chosen the theme this year of Aia Ka Home Me Ka Pu’uwai or “Home is Where the Heart is.” The theme encourages students and visitors alike to think about the places that they come from and the place that they hold within their hearts.
“Home can be interpreted so many different ways, depending on the person,” said Austin Chikamoto ’17, president of Ka Ohana Me Ke Aloha. “Home can mean where one has spent their childhood, where one has moved as an adult, or, for us college students, right here at the University of Puget Sound.”
Music will be provided by Northwest Blend, a local group specializing in Hawaiian infused music, who include four-part harmonies in their songs. The show will include dances from cultures including Hawaiian and Tahitian, as well as the spectacle of grass skirts, the malo (loincloth), and colorful island dresses. The dinner will include mac salad, fresh pineapple, lomi lomi salmon, cucumber and carrot namasu, Hawaiian sweet rolls, Kalua pig, huli huli chicken, sticky rice, haupia, coconut guava cake, and punch.
Tickets are on sale now, and are available in advance or at the door.

Her simple, yet mouth-watering recipe is so fresh tasting and flavorful, people hardly believe that there are only 6 simply ingredients. However, that is how Elizabeth cooked, she was raised on the simple, yet full of flavor diet that we refer to as “Soul Food.” Elizabeth passed her sweet potato pie recipe to her daughter Barbara who decided that the indulgent taste of the recipe should be shared with all of you!
Needless to say, Barbara and her youngest daughter Lillian ventured on the recipe, together with their food services ideas and passions, and started “Simply Soulful Pies & Catering.” Delightful pies and food that hold true to that simple, full of flavor soul food that you must try!
