Consumer Alert


Testing conducted by World Animal Protection—an organization that works to change animals’ lives for the better—and university researchers found antibiotic-resistant bacteria in pork sold at Walmart, a major grocery chain. Retailers have a responsibility to ensure animals in their supply chain are treated well and antibiotics are used responsibly. By requiring all suppliers adopt higher welfare practices, such as housing animals in groups, providing for natural behaviors and avoiding painful procedures, companies can help reduce reliance on routine antibiotics in farmed animals and mitigate the spread of resistant bacteria.
