See Why UCLA Hospitals Switched to Grass-Fed Beef

The UCLA Medical Center is now serving a much healthier menu! Burgers are now made from grass-fed beef. Why grass-fed? It’s not about what is in the beef but specifically what is not!

The menu enhancements were spurred by concern about bacteria’s growing resistance to antibiotics.

“With the effectiveness of key antibiotics dwindling, bacterial resistance presents a major public health challenge it’s critical that we reduce unnecessary antibiotic use in agriculture and support appropriate antibiotic use by clinicians and patients.”

According to the Food and Drug Administration, 80 percent of all antibiotics sold in the U.S. are used for food-producing animals.

“We serve more than 3.4 million meals annually between our two hospitals and are always looking for ways to enhance and improve our services”
