A popular American fast food restaurant wants you to "Eat mor chikin" without antibiotics.
Chick-fil-A Inc. announced plans Tuesday to use chicken raised without antibiotics in all of its restaurants within five years.
National and regional poultry suppliers are partnering with the company to stock up. Chik-fil-A wants these suppliers to collaborate with the U.S. Department of Agriculture to ensure the chickens do not receive any antibiotics.
Chick-fil-A is a privately owned company with 1,700 locations in 39 states and Washington. It deems itself the "second largest quick-service chicken restaurant chain in the United States." The company produced sales of $5 billion in 2013, the announcement said.
