McDonald’s has announced plans to reduce the use of antibiotics in its global beef supply, fuelling predictions that other restaurants will follow suit – The Guardian wrote.

The move by the world’s biggest fast-food chain addresses concerns that the overuse of antibiotics vital to fighting human infections in farm animals may diminish the drugs’ effectiveness in people.

McDonald’s becomes the biggest beef buyer to tackle the issue in cattle, potentially creating a new standard for livestock producers and threatening sales by drug companies. (origo wrote after The Guardian)
