Every year in the United States more than 2 million people get sick due to antibiotic-resistant infections, and at least 23,000 of them die as a result, according to the Centers for Disease Control. Common illnesses are becoming more difficult to treat because of increased antimicrobial resistance, and the food we eat plays a major role in this phenomenon.
1st WORST: Kentucky Fried Chicken
Colonel Sander’s company came in fifth on the Natural Resource Defense Council’s (NRDC) list. In order to come up with their rankings, the authors of Chain Reaction surveyed each company and reviewed their public statements using a scorecard.
2nd WORST: Arby’s
Maybe the “meats” in Arby’s slogan, “We Have the Meats,” could use a modifier or two, such as “super-secretive” or “totally mysterious.” As the fourth worst restaurant for antibiotics, Arby’s was the only company out of the 25 surveyed to score zero points when it comes to transparency.
3rd WORST: Sonic
This all-American drive-in has a totally un-American approach to antibiotic use, landing them in the top three among U.S. restaurants that are awful when it comes to antibiotics. Why does this matter? Seventy percent of antibiotics that are important for human medical use are sold to meat and poultry farms.
4th WORST: Olive Garden
Olive Garden was the runner-up for worst chain restaurant on NRDC’s list, scoring a whopping 4 out of 100. Its support of antibiotic use in the meat and poultry industry, along with everyone else’s, is costing the U.S. a lot.
5th WORST: Starbucks Coffee
Welcome to the club of people who were totally shocked and dismayed to discover that this beloved coffee chain is the worst among the top 25 players in the U.S. when it comes to antibiotics.
