The third largest chicken producer in America, Perdue, is currently facing a class-action lawsuit over their allegedly misleading “humanely raised” label. This lawsuit, brought by an HSUS member, is attempting to have the company remove their humane label and hopefully reform their management of the chickens.
The treatment of the birds at Perdue Farms is just as poor as that of conventional factory-farmed chickens. They are housed in overcrowded, dusty, ammonia-filled barns where they are routinely mutilated, deprived of proper veterinary care and often abused by workers.
Don’t hide behind labels such as “free-range” or “humanely raised.” It’s important to remember that these animals are sent off to the same premature, gruesome death at the slaughterhouse. Cruelty is cruelty, go vegan today!
