Frequently Asked Questions

Our Naturally Inspired turkeys are raised without any antibiotics ever and our growers comply with a protocol reviewed and approved by the Canadian Food Inspection Agency. To learn more click here.

Turkey care and well-being begins at the farm with dedicated growers following stringent growing methods to ensure the humane raising of our turkeys. We are committed to the use of antibiotics only when required and prescribed by a veterinarian to maintain the health of the flock.

 

If medication is required, the turkeys are removed from the flock and no longer qualify for the Naturally Inspired brand. Note: Mandatory antibiotic withdrawal periods prior to marketing are veterinary enforced and verified ensuring all turkey meat in Canada is antibiotic free.

Canadian turkeys are not given growth hormones or steroids. These drugs have been prohibited for over 30 years. Also, turkeys are not genetically modified in any manner. Advancements in breeding and selection, combined with better feed and on-farm programs are responsible for the larger, healthier and meatier turkeys raised today.

We created Naturally Inspired™ by Butterball* for those specifically seeking turkey raised without any antibiotics. Butterball has always been committed to the responsible use of antibiotics. The medications used for our turkeys are administered in strict compliance with regulations and only provided when needed to keep them healthy. All medications used are federally approved and exclude all Category 1 antibiotics, a Health Canada classification that identifies the most important antibiotics used in human medicine.
