American fast food giant McDonald’s says its US restaurants will gradually stop buying chickens raised on antibiotics used in human medical treatment.

Health experts fear the overuse of antibiotics could reduce their effectiveness in fighting disease.

Consumer advocates welcomed the move but pushed the global chain to go further and extend the phase-out to all meat products and all McDonald’s restaurants.

“Hopefully, chicken is just the start; the Big Mac and Mc Rib may be next,” said Jonathan Kaplan, director of the Natural Resources Defense Council’s food and agriculture programme.
