In-N-Out fans have one more reason to brag about their burger of choice, thanks to the chain’s recent decision to give the fans what they’ve been asking for: burgers not treated with antibiotics important to human medicine.
In-N-Out please give us a grass fed/none antibiotics beef option… I will no longer eat at your restaurants until then. #InNOutSaveABX

In-N-Out’s fresh ingredient policy is a large draw for the restaurant’s fans. Customers standing in line can even watch as fresh potatoes are cut into strips before they’re turned into fries. But the restaurant has fallen behind in terms of antibiotic-free meat. Shake Shack even boasts on its website that you will never find any antibiotic-treated meat in its product. In-N-Out, on the other hand, has only recently released a statement on the issue after being pressured into serving antibiotic-free meat. Keith Brazeau, In-N-Out’s vice president of quality, explains to Reuters,
Although the statement isn’t a definitive answer as to when this alternative will emerge, hopefully this means we are one step closer to a antibiotic-free or even a veggie burger option at In-N-Out. Kari Hamerschlag from Friends of the Earth explains,
Time to step it up, In-N-Out.
