Subway tries for healthy with new antibiotic-free rotisserie-style chicken


(FOX News) - Subway's' motto of "eat fresh" is getting new meaning with an upcoming lineup that includes antibiotic-free meat.

In October, the sandwich chain announced it was planning to follow other fast-food spots like Chipotle and Panera in ridding itself of antibiotics, but the talk has now turned to real products you can sink your teeth into.

Starting March 1, Subway will release a rotisserie-style chicken that is not only a new flavor, but also the first of their antibiotic-free poultry. The new chicken is slow-cooked chicken breast that will be hand-pulled in restaurants and available on any sandwich.

This will be followed up on April 1 with all of Subway's chicken strips being free of antibiotics.
