It is not placed in meats, it is administered in low levels in food and water. There is a big push to take anti-biotics out of the houses that raise meat chickens, and Chik Fil A is one of them. House owners are getting new contracts that include upgrades and additional capital expenditures to produce under the new program. I have reviewed contracts and loan documents for farmers going into the program. A vet or biologist working on the program told us point blank that many believe more antibiotics are going to be used in the new way of doing things than under the old way of providing small doses in feed or water. Kinda along the lines of the Chesterton Fence, a paradox or fallacy, and all that. Chesterton’s 1929 book, The Thing, in the chapter entitled, “The Drift from Domesticity”: In the matter of reforming things, as distinct from deforming them, there is one plain and simple principle; a principle which will probably be called a paradox. There exists in such a case a certain institution or law; let us say, for the sake of simplicity, a fence or gate erected across a road. The more modern type of reformer goes gaily up to it and says, “I don’t see the use of this; let us clear it away.” To which the more intelligent type of reformer will do well to answer: “If you don’t see the use of it, I certainly won’t let you clear it away. Go away and think. Then, when you can come back and tell me that you do see the use of it, I may allow you to destroy it."
