Tyson Foods, the country’s biggest poultry producer, is promising to stop feeding its chickens any antibiotics that are used in human medicine. It’s the most dramatic sign so far of a major shift. Tyson Foods, one of the world’s largest producers of chicken, announced on Tuesday that it plans to eliminate human antibiotics from its chicken flocks by the end of September 2017.

U.S. Politics. April 29, 2015 Tyson Foods, a major U.S. meat producer, said on Tuesday that it would cease using antibiotics in its chickens by 2017, the New York Times reported.

On Tuesday, Arkansas-based Tyson Foods became the latest chicken producer to eliminate the use of “human antibiotics” for raising chickens in its U.S. operations. The company has pledged to phase. 24 Feb 2017 Tyson, the second-largest poultry company in the world has announced that it will stop using antibiotics on its chickens by June 2017. The decision to end the use of antibiotics is expected to cover all of the company’s branded chicken products, as.

Now Tyson Foods — the biggest chicken seller in the US — is trying to tackle the problem of antibiotic resistance, announcing today that it plans to eliminate the use of human antibiotics in its. Tyson said it has already stopped using all antibiotics in its 35 broiler hatcheries and has cut human antibiotics used to treat its broiler chickens by more than 80 percent since 2011. The company said it requires a veterinary prescription when antibiotics are. Last year Tyson Foods announced all Tyson branded chicken products would be raised with NO ANTIBIOTICS EVER (NAE) – making us the world’s leading producer of NAE chicken. This means these chickens are never given antibiotics in any phase of their lives – from egg to market age.

Tyson Foods is the world’s largest producer of no-antibiotics-ever (NAE) chicken. All chickens raised for the Tyson® retail brand are grown without using any antibiotics – ever. In addition, Tyson Foodservice offers chicken raised with no antibiotics ever under the Tyson Red Label™ brand Tyson True®Tenderpressed® brand, and select Tyson® individually frozen bone-in products. Tyson was using antibiotic-like substances called ionophores in its “antibiotic-free” chickens.

A quick primer: Conventional antibiotics are used in poultry and pork production at low levels to control intestinal bacteria and enhance feed efficiency.

List of related literature:

The magazine had found that Perdue chicken was far less likely to carry bacteria resistant to more than one antibiotic than chicken from other producers, including Tyson and Foster Farms.

Tyson Foods has similar discretion in deciding how much antibiotic drugs called ionophores it will feed to its chickens, or what kind of chemicals it will spray on chicken carcasses at its slaughterhouses to fight food-borne illness.

Early in 2002, the three largest U.S. chicken producers, Tyson Foods among them, said they would reduce use of enrofloxacin, and McDonald’s said it had decided a year earlier not to use meat from animals treated with fluoroquinolone antibiotics.”

Interesting enough, the American food company Tyson at one point was selling chickens advertised as “raised without antibiotics” when in fact the chicken eggs were injected with plenty of antibiotics before they hatched!

Companies like Tyson will stand to gain enormous profits if consumers only buy chicken produced in their bird jails.

To minimize the potential for transfer to human, antibiotics should always be used properly when treating the diseases of chickens.

Chickens develop faster in part because they’re fed growth-promoting antibiotics, but those drugs cause costly antibiotic resistance when they end up in our food and our waterways, making it that much harder for us to fight off a slew of sicknesses—and leading to more time in the doctor’s office.

  • Antibiotic-resistant bacteria from livestock have already made it into the guts of most human beings causes diabetes and more. Ripely, the Aliens are already within.

  • I honestly don’t see why people care about how the chickens were raised as long as it doesn’t hurt us (yeah I know the antibiotics do some damage) were going to eat them anyways right?

  • Tyson cuts the head and slits the throats of innocent chickens WHILE
    THEY ARE STILL ALIVE. Tyson is a horrible horrible company. All people
    who work for tyson deserve to be treated the way they treat those
    chickens. To have there nose cut of without anesthesia right after
    birth. To be cages with barely enough room to breath. To be pumped full
    of chemicals. To be hung upside down watching their loves ones brutally
    murdered in a extremely painful way and then have the same done to them.

  • Not to mention the ppl who are now resistant to antibiotics.. helloooooo we dont need to be giving our freeking food antibiotics…

  • This ad actually gave me a worse view of Tyson’s than I had before watching it.

    Chicks hatching in tightly stacked crates at 0:39? The dark, dreary “barn” with no sunlight at 0:43? The way they’re all crammed together at 1:01? Not to mention that we don’t see the older chickens at any point.

    Maybe my distaste toward factory farms stems from my upbringing around farms and seeing happy free range chickens everywhere. I’m sure there are worse factory farms out there, but if this is what Tyson’s WANTS to show their consumers, what aren’t they showing us? But I was indifferent about Tyson’s before, and after this ad’s failed attempt to show their conditions in a positive light I’m definitely never buying their chicken again.

  • Is Dr. Scott Gustin the guy who throws the baby male chicks into the grinder or suffocates them in a bag? Is he the one that over feeds the survivors so they grow so quickly their legs break and they suffer organ failure due to their unnaturally quick growth? Is he the one who hangs them upside down then HOPEFULLY stuns them by shocking them in electrified water before slitting their throats so the blood drains from their bodies? Is he the one who picks out their feathers and then slices their bodies into chunks of flesh? Is he the one who if he doesn’t cook their dismembered bodies correctly it can lead to fatal food-born illnesses? Is he the one who treats people’s rectal cancer because their dead bodies rot in the last part of our intestine? Is he the one who cuts open our legs and chest cavity to transplant a blood vessel so our heart will keep beating because the old one is clogged with the old decayed fat from their bodies? No? Lucky him, hopefully he knows some therapists who can help all the people who actually work in this system and get horrible psychiatric problems. Or maybe he can help re-attach the severed fingers of workers who lose their livelihood due to a complete inability for workers to have any oversight due to these companies wanting to hide this whole paragraph and soon this video from compassionate animal loving humans (aka 99% of everyone I’ve ever met even if they have their flaws)?

  • Tyson sued the USDA in 2008 over allowing them to state their product was raised without antibiotics. Even if they don’t use them anymore, this still happened. Do not trust this company https://www.law360.com/articles/59203/tyson-sues-usda-over-chicken-labels

  • “Today, no antibiotics are used in the hatchery ever.”
    “These chickens never saw any kind of antibiotics in the egg, during the incubation process, and when we delivered them (shows shots of young chickens). There’s been no antibiotics here.”
    So do you use antibiotics on them after they’re delivered as you’re raising them? Seems to me this video only asserts that you don’t use antibiotics from the time they’re in the egg until they’re delivered to the farm to be raised. Correct me if I’m wrong but it seems like you were choosing words very carefully in this video…

  • false. the farms are inhumane nd they put the birds on steroids so they grow abnormally fast. there Is proof look up “tyson lies and tortures animals” several results will come up

  • Yup, such amazing quality. Thats why outta of the three times iv had your chicken, i ended up sick to my stomach and stuck in my bathroom for a good hour or so.

  • Well eat organic meats and produce which have no antibiotics in them. Also colloidal silver cures superbugs studies have shown that. The best product to buy is sovereign silver because it is the smallest particle size,.8 nanometers and the purest silver 99.999 percent and pharmaceutical grade water when talking about purity here. It’s antiviral antibacterial anti fungus it’s the most antimicrobial substance known to man. God bless hope this helps

  • Wow, no antibiotics, it’s almost like we can let the face that you guys are abusing your animals in other ways slide out the window, but we can’t and we don’t want to.

  • you’re*
    If you’re going to be racist, make sure you can spell. But, since you’re being racist, I don’t expect for you to be smart.

  • Such happy chickens I’m certain harvest is equally as pleasant for them. Such a nice word “harvest” it reminds me of pumpkin season and thanksgiving.

  • Those poor chickens are kept by the thousands in the dark their entire lives for slaughter. This shit makes me sick. They keep saying “it’s about doing the right things.” Put those fucking chickens in a field you idiots!

  • I get that you are trying to send this message of being humane and treating chickens right but it really doesn’t come off as successfully as you think when its all for the sake of slaughtering them in the end. Don’t get me wrong, I enjoy a nice whole chicken, and chicken breast but let’s be real. They are reared to be slaughtered and emphasizing the health and care is great practice and all it just doesn’t create the best PR video. “We treat our chickens right, until we kill them.” -basically.

  • wow no surprize the ppl that farm these chickens disagree…. none of them wanna spend money on healthy chickens!.. think about it WHY exactly would we feed chickens antibiotics.. becasue there infected and SICK…healthy chickens DONT need antibiotics!!!

  • Ok listen here, do you really think keeping chickens inside all their lives, in small cages being forced to step on each other? These chickens need to be raised in a large field with proper food and water nothing else. If you actually want your chicken to taste good how about you treat them properly? Because your chicken tastes. Like. Crap. And that is because the chickens are unhappy and stressed.

  • BULLSHIT!! These chickens go through hell, these men kill them in the most i humane ways you can imagine, they stomp them and hose them down with high pressure water, you ppl are SICK SADIST BASTARDS

  • “No antibiotics EVER”?

    That’s inhumane. What do you do when they get sick? I hate when I have to compromise this so I can get “cage free” as a small step in the right direction.

  • FREE RANGE and ANTIBIOTIC FREE, there are chickens out there and I would rather pay a little extra for my food then be sick w/a bladder infection that won’t ever go away. Lets see, getting sick, having to take antibiotics yourself and having 2 go and see the DR, pay a co-pay each time plus prescription or just pay a little extra for the chicken so I don’t get sick from it!! Sounds like a no brainer for me….and Mary’s Chicken that is sold in Whole Foods is the best tasting chicken either way!!

  • Why is the lighting in the video soooo dark? I feel it is that dim to prevent showing what we do not want to see. Also I doubt they have ever seen actually sunlight.

    My friends boyfriend worked for Tyson. He quit shortly after starting because he said he was so uncomfortable with how the treat the chickens. Ever since I heard his story I have yet to consume any Tyson products…

  • My main thoughts about this video is that If I eat chicken: buy either organic (probably not given these antibiotics), get the free range chickens (because it said that this had to do with chickens cramped in tight quarters, or buy the package that says not treated with hormones (an affordable option for chicken). Other options is to become vegetarian or buy other protein sources: lean steak grass fed and free range, certain types of fish, or protein drinks.

  • the worst foods are sent down into the ghetto’s anyway, don’t know why you blk people trust these community supper markets. better go vegan people, vegan meat taste just as good as real meat if you put the right spices & flavors to it.
