Our Quality

Chicken

RAISED WITHOUT ANTIBIOTICS

 

Quality is our #1 ingredient. That’s why our Chicken Wings are made from chickens raised without antibiotics and fed an all vegetable-grain diet, with no animal by-products. Plus, our Bites are made with 100% chicken breast meat.

 

Due to the ongoing Covid-19 pandemic and heightened precautions at our suppliers, RWA wings cannot be guaranteed at all locations at this time. We apologize for this temporary inconvenience.

 

Raised Without Antibiotics FAQ:

What does it mean?

The animals have not received antibiotics from birth to harvest. That means that no antibiotic was administered to the mother, or to the animal in any manner. Drugs registered with CFIA as feed ingredients, veterinary biological products and vaccines are permitted to be used.

Why is RWA so important right now?

 

Reducing or eliminating the use of medically important antibiotics in animals will contribute to the reduction of bacteria that are resistant to drugs used to treat infections in humans.

What happens if the chicken gets sick?

 

The veterinarian is required to ensure understanding of the health issues and may find it necessary to use natural treatments such as yeast based products to treat the chickens. If the non-antibiotic treatments are ineffective, the veterinarian will make the decision to remove the chicken from the RWA program, and medicate as necessary. The chicken will then be used in conventional production.

What protocols do we have in place to monitor this program?

Veterinarian supported with annual third party audits used to monitor the RWA program at our supplier.

Is this part of your Animal Care program?

 

Antibiotics will remain an important part of any responsible animal care program so that we and suppliers monitor the care of chicken in all of our RWA programs and address health issues in a timely fashion.
