    Fast food chain Subway is taking its first step toward making its meats antibiotic free, according to CNBC.

    Subway will begin selling a rotisserie-style chicken sandwich on March 1 that is made of antibiotic-free, all white-meat chicken with no artificial color or flavor.

    "We have always supported nutrition transparency, 100 percent of the time, and we've done our best to inform our customers of the nutrition values," said Lanette Kovachi, Subway's corporate dietitian. "For about 20 years now, we've put that information out there."

    The restaurant plans to be antibiotic-free in the U.S. by 2025, citing customer demand for the ingredient overhaul.
