Don't Stuff Our Turkeys with Antibiotics!

Advocate for Legislation that Provides Sensible Antibiotic Use and Proper Food Labeling

Driven by the increasing awareness of antibiotic resistance and its link to food animal production and the ever growing demand for meat and poultry products raised with antibiotics, LULAC, in partnership with the Pew Charitable Trusts, has launched the Super Madres campaign to raise awareness and advocacy around the injudicious use of antibiotics in food animal production.

As part of this initiative, we urge you to advocate for legislation that provides judicious use of antibiotics in meat and poultry production in order to protect the health of farm workers and to prevent the dangerous overuse of antibiotics by signing this petition or by collecting signatures in your community.
