Stop the spread of superbugs: sign the petition

The intensive use of antibiotics is breeding dangerous antibiotic-resistant bacteria, or “superbugs.” Just one type of superbug, MRSA, kills about 19,000 Americans annually, more than HIV/AIDS.

The misuse of antibiotics on factory farms contributes to this growing problem. Animals are routinely fed antibiotics in low doses, helping them grow faster and endure crowded, dirty, and stressful conditions— and breeding superbugs in the process.

Join the fight to protect yourself and your family from superbugs.
