Popular burger chain 'In-N-Out' recently announced that it will begin serving beef raised without antibiotics. In recent years, there has been a growing backlash against the use of meat raised with antibiotics. Now In-N-Out is following the lead of chains such as Subway and McDonald’s by using hormone-free meat.

As of yesterday, In-N-Out will begin switching to the use of hormone-free beef in its freshly made burgers. The move follows pressure from activists who are increasingly concerned about how current meat products could lead to antibiotic resistance. As a result, In-N-Out has pledged a commitment to only serving beef raised without antibiotics.

The brand's move towards antibiotic-free meat products demonstrates an effort to cater to health-conscious consumers, as well as an attempt to compete with chains such as Shake Shack, which have long touted their commitment to all-natural beef.
