Tyson Chicken To Be Antibiotic Free Within Two Years

April 28, 2015: 12:00 AM EST
Tyson Foods announced it will end the use of antibiotics in its chicken products by September 2017. The decision is a reflection of a more health-conscious attitude among food companies, which are using less antibiotics and other artificial ingredients in their products. Market researcher IRI said dollar sales of antibiotic-free chicken – about 11 percent of total chicken sales -- were up 25 percent in the year ending January 25. Organic chicken sales were up 33 percent in the same period. Tyson is the largest seller of chicken in the U.S.
