CNN announced that 20 out of 25 of the largest U.S. fast food and casual restaurants earn an F when it comes to “their policies and practices regarding antibiotics use and transparency in their meat and poultry supply chains” (see chart below).
This is quite disturbing considering that these are restaurants/fast food chains that many of us Americans visit frequently.
I wasn’t surprised that Chipotle earned an A, but I was when I learned that Panera did also. To be honest, I was somewhat skeptical if they were as “fresh” as they claim to be. So good job Panera and Chipotle! That’s why we love you and are willing to pay a little bit more.
Curious about Chick-fil-a? Don’t worry they scored a B.
I was taken aback to learn that McDonald’s and Dunkin’ Donuts received C’s, while Subway earned a F. I would think these two grades would be switched, and that Subway would earn at least a B. Subway, ya’ll are suppose to be fresh! It’s in your tagline. Come on fam.
Don’t see your favorite chain listed above? Sorry to break it to you but that means they failed. And that includes Starbucks, Olive Garden, Applebee’s and more. For the full investigation conducted by Chain Reaction click here.
