I hear that antibiotics are used in turkey production. Why?


UK poultry meat producers have stopped all antibiotic preventative treatments and the highest priority antibiotics that are critically important for humans are used only as a ‘last resort’ for chickens and turkeys. Between 2012 – 2019 there has been a 76% reduction in the use of antibiotics in the poultry industry. If you are concerned about antibiotics being used in the poultry industry why not ask your supplier the question have antibiotics been used in the rearing of my turkey?
