On 18 September 2015 Reuters reported:
A McDonald's Corp shareholder group is renewing its call for the fast-food chain to stop buying any meat from animals raised with antibiotics vital to fighting human infections. The move from the Congregation of Benedictine Sisters of Boerne, Texas, comes amid growing concern from public health experts that the overuse of such drugs is contributing to rising numbers of life-threatening human infections from antibiotic-resistant bacteria dubbed 'superbugs.' The sisters are pressing the world's biggest restaurant chain to expand its policy to phase out chicken produced with antibiotics to include beef and pork, and to take it global. Trinity Health, a not-for-profit Catholic health system and Interfaith Center on Corporate Responsibility (ICCR) member, separately has filed a shareholder resolution asking Hormel Foods Corp to phase out the routine use of important human antibiotics in the hogs and turkeys it raises, as well as those provided by contract suppliers.
