Subway is finally phasing out its controversial antibiotics policies.

Subway: Where soon you’ll be able to eat fresher than you ever had before.

The sandwich chain has been slowly rolling out new health-conscious menu changes, including a policy that would eventually phase out all antibiotic-raised meats. The newest addition coming to Subway menus nationwide March 1 is antibiotic-free rotisserie chicken, which will be followed by antibiotic-free chicken strips on April 1.

Subway confirmed in a press conference that it began with antibiotic-free chicken because it was an easier transition than other deli meats. The restaurant will also introduce antibiotic-free turkey within the next two or three years and officially be 100 percent antibiotic-free by 2025.

Other fast food chains like Wendy’s and Burger King have also pledged to take the antibiotic-free challenge. Scientists and the FDA have warned that increased antibiotics usage in livestock has led to a proliferation of antibiotic-resistant “superbugs.”
