Here at GoldBurgers, we take our business seriously and our goal is to provide fresh, healthy food to our guests. The chicken patties we serve are a blend of antibiotic and hormone-free thigh and breast meat from Stew Leonard’s right here in Connecticut!
Antibiotics and hormone use in farm animals has caused concern for some time. Decades ago, farmers started giving antibiotics to their farm animals after they realized that their animals would gain as much as 3 percent more weight than if they weren’t given antibiotics but little did they know that antibiotics stay in the meat and then ingested by people. This causes a big concern because people ingesting the antibiotics in the meat may not respond to antibiotic treatment if they fall ill because of building up a resistance.
Hormones used in meat has been determined to cause an increased risk in reproductive cancers among women and breast cancer.
Stay healthy and happy by looking for antibiotic and hormone free meat next time you’re shopping and don’t forget to stop in at one of our GoldBurgers locations soon to enjoy the best chicken sandwiches and burgers in Connecticut!
