I think it&#39;s ironic that Panera is implying farmers who give their chickens antibiotics are lazy because isn&#39;t Panera lazy? I like to eat all kinds of foods and enjoy breakfast there from time to time, but they shouldn&#39;t pretend like they don&#39;t serve soups that they just heat in bags, or that they changed Jeni Flaahttp://www.blogger.com/profile/13809100092721407844noreply@blogger.comtag:blogger.com,1999:blog-2857161791109887176.post-26590885401966067372013-08-01T15:55:29.669-05:002013-08-01T15:55:29.669-05:00On Food and Farm tomorrow (August 2) at noon EDT o...On Food and Farm tomorrow (August 2) at noon EDT on America&#39;s Web Radio we&#39;ll be talking antibiotics with Dr. Janeal Yancey, Dr. Len Bull and Dr. Michael Doyle.

I have nothing against that.<br /><br />But an important point to make - there are NO antibiotics in ANY meat. When an animal is given antibiotics, there are strict withdrawal times, meaning the farmer has to wait until the antibiotics are out of the animal&#39;s system to send it to market.

Panera should have more integrity. Being a farmer is hard work! But with regards to the antibiotic free chicken I do support their decision and I think more companies will be going this route soon.
