  Chicken producer Perdue Farms Inc. has become the first major poultry company to attempt to raise more than half of its flock with no antibiotics, human or for animals only. As demand for meats free of medicines has risen, Perdue has upgraded their facilities to increase cleanliness and sterility to allow the company to cut antibiotics out of the chicken hatching process.
