Giant Food launches antibiotic-free line of pork

Giant Food has introduced a private brand of antibiotic-free pork products, the Landover-based grocery chain said Wednesday.

The “No Antibiotics Ever” line contains no antibiotics or hormones, and animals are vegetarian fed. The new line is available at all of Giant’s 167 supermarkets in Maryland, Virginia, Delaware and Washington..

The products, identified with a Giant logo and “No Antibiotics Ever” label, are “in step with consumer trends,” said Gordon Reid, Giant Food president, in an announcement.

Products include bone-in chops, boneless chops and boneless sirloin chops.

The new line is part of Giant’s offering of private brands on products such as household items, snacks and produce. In November, Giant introduced its Nature’s Promise brand antibiotic and growth hormone-free turkeys.
