Playing Chicken

You probably don’t eat at Kentucky Fried Chicken. And you may not recognize the Sanderson Farms brand of chicken, unless you live in certain regions of the country, especially the Northeast and Southeast. But whether or not you buy chicken from either of these two companies, they both pose a threat to your health. Because both companies refuse to stop using chickens pumped full of antibiotics—which makes them both contributors to the rising problem of antibiotic-resistant superbugs.

According to a 2013 report from the U.S. Centers for Disease Control revealing, 23,000 people in the U.S. alone die every year from antibiotic-resistant infections. Another two million get sick from antibiotic-resistant infections. A 2015 report commissioned by the UK government estimates that by 2050, the annual global death toll from antibiotic resistant disease will reach 10 million, and the global cost for treatment will be around $100 trillion.

And just last week, the Washington Post reported that “for the first time, researchers have found a person in the United States carrying bacteria resistant to antibiotics of last resort, an alarming development that the top U.S. public health official says could mean ‘the end of the road for antibiotics.”

It’s a widely reported fact that one of the primary reasons antibiotics that once helped save lives are now ineffective is the over-use of antibiotics by factory farms. And KFC, one of the world’s largest fast-food chicken restaurants, and Sanderson Farms, one the third largest poultry producers in the U.S., are partly to blame. I

t’s time for these two industry leaders to stop playing chicken with antibiotic-resistant superbugs.
