A&W Antibiotic-Free Chicken Guarantee Is Responsible Fast Food

Do you know what ingredients are in your fast food meal?

About a month ago, I walked into my chiropractor’s office and saw a jar labelled Nov 2009. What was in the jar? A burger and fries from a well-known fast food restaurant that had literally NOT decayed! Um, what? 5 years and it hasn’t had no indication of spoiling? 5 years!

I may not be a scientific genius but I think I know enough that the burger and fries in that jar made me wonder what the heck I’ve put into my body by eating there for many years.

Now don’t get me wrong, I DO eat fast food from time to time, but I am also very conscious about where that food comes from, the ingredients that are used and the overall social responsibility of the restaurant.

A&W  began their “ingredients guarantee” in September 2013 with the introduction of beef raised without the use of hormones or steroids. Effective today, October 20th, A&W is proud to be introducing chicken raised without the use of antibiotics.

A&W Chicken guarantee

This type of guarantee is a North American first for the 100% Canadian owned restaurant.

100% Real Seasoned Chicken

Chicken is becoming more and more popular at A&W with choices that include the famous A&W “Chubby Chicken®” burgers, wraps, strips and dinners. No matter which chicken choice you make, all feature chicken raised without the use of antibiotics. Plus, A&W chicken strips and sandwiches feature 100% real seasoned white chicken breast and tender meat.

A&W chicken comes from Canadian farms where the chickens are raised using the best farming practices in large barns where they are free to roam with constant access to fresh water, feed and fresh air.

Did you know that 75% of Canadians prefer to consume chicken raised without the use of antibiotics? 

“Canadians are asking for these types of ingredients and A&W is delivering” says Susan Senecal, Ingredients Champion

A&W clearly continues to raise their quality standards. I think that means I just might have to graduate from the Teen Burger (my personal fave) to one of the Chubby Chicken burgers & wraps!

How do you feel about A&W’s newest ingredient guarantee? I’d love to hear from you!

Happy antibiotic-free eating!

    I love that A&W is doing this! We rarely eat at fast food places but when we do we often pick A&W.

    Reading this and learning this new tid bit of information makes me happy that A&W is and always has been my favorite take out place!
    I’ll feel slightly less guilty / grossed out after stuffing my face with greasy take out.
