Only two fast-food restaurants received ‘A’ grades for banning antibiotics in beef

In the fast-food industry, where you find the beef, you may very well find antibiotics.

A new report assigned “failing grades” to 22 of the 25 largest burger chains in the U.S. over their policies on antibiotics use in the production of the beef they serve. The report was co-authored by researchers from a range of public-interest organizations including U.S. PIRG, Consumer Reports and the Natural Resources Defense Council, among others.

Only two of the restaurants analyzed — Shake Shack SHAK, -6.44% and BurgerFi — received “A” grades. Both only serve beef raised without antibiotics. Only Shake Shack and Wendy’s made third-party independent auditing reports public regarding antibiotics use among their producers.
