Two National Pizza Chains Fail Antibiotics-policy Report

Although two chains received an A grade—Chipotle and Panera—most of the quick-service restaurants scored much lower. Atlanta-based Chick-fil-A, which is the inspiration for the Pizza for Good pie “Closed on Sundays,” earned a B.

From the post:

The report notes that Chick-fil-A, the largest U.S. chicken chain by domestic sales volume, has committed to serve 100-percent no-antibiotics chicken by 2019 and indicates that, as of March 2015, 20 percent of its chicken meets this standard, reports Food Safety News.

Bad news for the cellar-dwellers, though:

No companies receive a ‘D’ in the report. Twenty top fast food chains receive an ‘F.’ Companies graded ‘F’ include: Applebee’s, Arby’s, Burger King, Chili’s, Dairy Queen, Denny’s, Domino’s Pizza, KFC, Olive Garden, Papa John’s, Sonic, Starbucks, Subway and Wendy’s.

Make your pizza at home! You’ll have more control over ingredients and it’ll be way healthier, too.
