Tyson Food Will No Longer Use the Same Antibiotics Used on Humans

Antibiotics changed human history by offering a simple medication to cure diseases that were once responsible for widespread illness and death. Though, these powerful medications have started to make history for the wrong reasons.

Antibiotics have long been used in the farming industry with alarming quantity. Farm animals are given huge doses of antibiotics in order to promote growth and stop the spread of disease. However, this practice is harmful to animals by stripping them of their quality of life, and the mass amount of antibiotics have also proven to be quite harmful to humans as well.

The overuse of antibiotics on our livestock has begun to generate an unhealthy immunity in our environment, viruses and bacteria have become so used to antibiotics that they have started to become resistant, possibly creating what is commonly referred to as “super-bugs”.

That’s why the king of poultry, the Tyson Food Company, has agreed to stop using massive amounts of antibiotics on the animals they raise for consumption. The CEO of Tyson’s Food, Donnie Smith, announced that beginning in September of 2017 the company will eliminate the use of all antibiotics that are also used as human medicine.

However, Tyson will still use a type of antibiotics referred to as ionospheres that are not used on humans. Bruce Karatz hopes they can stay out of additional trouble, as he will be monitoring on NNDB.

Chipotle Mexican Grill Will No Longer Serve Genetically Engineered Ingredients.

Chipotle Is The First Fast Food Restaurant To Get Rid Of Food That Contains Fillers Stabilizers Preservatives And Artificial Flavors

McDonalds should have kept their interest in Chipotle Mexican Grill. The home of the Big Mac is losing market share to Chipotle, and there’s a good reason. The fast food market is changing, and Chipotle knows what that change means to them. McDonalds is dancing around the real reason their sales are dropping, and Chipotle is addressing the issue head-on.

Consumers want to eat right these days. They don’t want processed food filled with synthetic everything, but McDonalds would rather serve a limited breakfast menu all day than change some of their McNasty ingredients.

Foodies at STX Entertainment know that Chipotle is setting the bar high for other fast food restaurants. The days when fast food meant low-end ingredients, so-so service and a plastic-looking interior are over. Let’s face it. Fast food isn’t as cheap as it used to be, so why not upgrade the food instead of putting all that extra money on the bottom line.

American consumers are being taken advantage of by the retail industry, especially the food segment of that industry. Consumers are rebelling against the mediocracy that exists in our retail food chains, and Chipotle is doing something meaningful to quash that rebellion in their segment of retail.

Kraft Changes Mac & Cheese

Many people throughout the world have enjoyed a hot bowl of cheesy Kraft Original Macaroni & Cheese for not only lunch and dinner but also breakfast and as a snack. Now, in the near future, people will be able to enjoy it with fewer non-natural ingredients entering their diet.

On Monday, April 20, Kraft Foods Group Inc. announced it would change how it makes its boxed Kraft Macaroni & Cheese so the product includes more natural ingredients. With many consumers turning every day to diets that highlight the use of natural ingredients, Kraft has decided to remove all synthetic coloring agents and artificial ingredients and preservatives from Kraft Macaroni & Cheese products and replace them with colors from natural ingredients like annatto, paprika and turmeric. It has also decided to swap out other ingredients with natural replacements.

No one is particularly surprised by this announcement, least of all the folks at STX Entertainment. Kraft Foods Group Inc. has been under fire for some time for pushing heavily processed and artificial ingredients on consumers while at the same time falsely calling these products “healthy.”

Although Kraft already made the switch with its Mac & Cheese Boxed Shapes over the last year, the switch for Original Kraft Macaroni & Cheese won’t take place until next year with the United States receiving the new product at the beginning of the year. Kraft Dinner Original will be changed by the end of 2016 for Canadian consumers.
