Trader Joe's: Stop selling meat with antibiotics

To be delivered to Trader Joe's CEO Dan Bane

Petition Statement

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention recently reported that the overuse of antibiotics is a growing threat to public health. Already, two million Americans get sick every year with antibiotic-resistant infections, and 23,000 die.

That's why I want Trader Joe's to step up and stop selling meat that's been given antibiotics for non-therapeutic use.
There are currently 3,957 signatures. NEW goal - We need 4,000 signatures!

Petition Background

Antibiotic-resistant infections are on the rise and the warnings from the medical community are getting louder. But even as we press the Food and Drug Administration to act, we need stores and restaurants to do their part, by ending meat purchases from factory farms that give daily doses of antibiotics to healthy livestock.

Trader Joe’s, with its direct control of its suppliers and its history of taking socially responsible actions, is an ideal company to step up.
