So, apparently a half-hearted apology to farmers because “whoops, we got caught” was supposed to satisfy us. On the other hand though, we weren’t supposed to notice that they’re continuing to tell consumers misleading information?
We only use antibiotics to keep our animals healthy, just like you’d give to your pets. But, we also adhere to strict regulations about what happens after we give an animal those antibiotics. Let me repeat information I’ve posted before:
Should I be concerned about antibiotics in my meat?
Panera should seriously be ashamed for these deceptive advertising scams in an attempt to make a quick buck. Instead of celebrating the hard work of our farmers, the care we give our animals, and our adherence to regulations meant to keep our food safe, they decided to throw us under the bus.
And they aren’t one bit sorry about it.
In the end, was it really worth ticking off the people that, quite literally, supply all of the food products you sell?
