How can consumers know if the natural meat they purchase is from animals raised without antibiotics?

Last Updated: Nov 05, 2015 10:41AM EST
Currently, there is no labeling standard in the United States to alert consumers about an animal’s antibiotic intake, either for growth or medicinal reasons. However, there are organic and antibiotic-free meats on the market, which come from animals that have never received such medicines. Meat manufacturers who raise animals without antibiotics will make claims on their labels such as “Antibiotic-free” or “No Antibiotics Used.” If a label is not clear, a consumer should call the manufacturer and ask.
