In the news

Have you seen the headlines? Just 24 hours after receiving a letter from our coalition -- and getting hundreds of comments on its Facebook page -- In-N-Out issued a statement late last week committing to eliminate the use of routine antibiotics from its beef production.

And the California media loved it! This commitment makes In-N-Out the first major burger chain in the nation to make such a commitment.

Check out the coverage below. It not only touts In-N-Out’s commitment, it helps spread awareness of this serious, and growing, public health issue. When the company demonstrates that it's serious by publishing its policy online and setting a precise timeline to eliminate beef raised on routine antibiotics from its menu. If the company follows through on its pledge, we’ll see major changes in how beef is raised throughout the West Coast. That will be a tremendous step forward in the fight to stop antibiotics overuse on factory farms.
