Do You Only Use Chicken Treated Without Antibiotics?

March 04, 2021

In 2015, McDonald's introduced an antibiotics policy in the U.S. to only source chicken raised without antibiotics important to human medicine, which we completed nearly a year ahead of schedule. Farmers still use ionophores, a class of antibiotics that are not prescribed to people, to help keep chickens healthy.

We have also committed to fully transitioning to cage-free eggs in the U.S. and Canada by 2025.
