A lot of people are unhappy because Chick-fil-A is changing their chicken recipe.  

Chick-fil-Over the weekend, A said it will no longer maintain its chickens antibiotic-free, breaking a 10-year promise.

To preserve supply of the high-quality chicken you expect from us, Chick-fil-A will change from No Antibiotics Ever (NAE) to No Antibiotics Important To Human Medicine (NAIHM) commencing in the Spring of 2024, the company announced on its website in a post titled “Our chicken commitment.”

The announcement clarifies that NAE means no antibiotics are used to produce livestock.

While NAIHM bans “the use of those antibiotics that are important to human medicine and commonly used to treat people,” animal antibiotics can be used to treat sick animals and people.

A Chick-fil-A representative tells TODAY.com, “As we looked to the future, the availability of high-quality chicken that meets our rigid standards became a concern.

This change ensures we can continue to serve high-quality chicken that meets our customers' expectations.”

Chick-fil-A fulfilled its 2014 goal to provide antibiotic-free chicken in all its restaurants by 2019. In 2021, Chipotle revealed that most of its pork and all of its beef and poultry were antibiotic-free.

Last year, Tyson Foods, which declared in 2017 that all its consumer brand products would use NAE chicken, switched to NAIHM antibiotics in July 2023.
