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

Last Updated: Jan 23, 2018 01:09PM 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.  Organic meat is always from animals that have not received antibiotics.  Natural meat manufacturers who raise animals without antibiotics will make claims on their labels such as “Raised without Antibiotics" or “No Antibiotics Used.” If a label is not clear, a consumer should call the manufacturer and ask.
