Eat without Antibiotics. Next time you buy meat or poultry, choose products raised without the routine use of antibiotics, using the Eat Well Consumer Guide. Use it to find retail outlets, restaurants, and producers nationwide that sell meat and poultry raised without the routine use of antibiotics. Or, find them yourself by searching out meat products with labels that say "certified organic," "raised without antibiotics," and "no antibiotics administered." Check out Label Facts, to find a listing of other terms used to label meats and what they mean. Your choices as a consumer will bolster efforts to change public policies that currently allow routine use of antibiotics in animals that aren't sick.
