The burger giant Mc Donald’s promises to cut antibiotics worldwide

By January 2018 , McDonald’s Corporation is planning to phase out antibiotics defined by the World Health Organization (as Highest Priority Critically Important (HPCIA) to human medicine) in it’s global chicken supply.

Antibiotic-resistant bacteria have become a massive health problem, killing thousands of people every year .

By January 2027, HPCIAs will be limited from all of the company’s designated markets.

Use of antimicrobials in food animals can create an important source of antimicrobial resistant bacteria that can spread to humans through the food supply. Improved management of the use of antimicrobials in food animals, particularly reducing those critically important for human medicine, is an important step towards preserving the benefits of antimicrobials for people. WHO has developed and applied criteria to rank antimicrobials according to their relative importance in human medicine. Clinicians, regulatory agencies, policy-makers and other stakeholders can use this ranking when developing risk management strategies for the use of antimicrobials in food production animals. The use of the list will help preserve the effectiveness of currently available antimicrobials.

The FDA  estimates that bacteria that are resistant to antibiotics cause 2 million infections and 23,000 deaths in the US each year.
