Oak Brook, Illinois--McDonald's Corp. is directing its meat suppliers worldwide to phase out use of growth-promoting antibiotics in animals because of concerns that the practice lessens the drugs' effectiveness in humans. The policy does not prohibit use of antibiotics to treat sick livestock; it is aimed instead at antibiotics routinely given to animals to promote growth. McDonald's is telling its direct suppliers, those that control all stages of animal production, to phase out such antibiotics by the end of 2004. -Associated Press
