We have to keep the pressure on them or they will do as they please when not being watched.

That is some news, but better news will be if they go out of business completely.

Good to hear that KFC is joining the other restaurants to help the rainforest. Now to get the last of them to also do it.

Only time will tell. Quite frankly unless we keep a constant eye on them, they will revert back to their unethical practices. Believe nothing of what you hear, only half of what you see and do not give a damn for nothing other than hard facts.

Noted and signed. I'm beyond delighted that KFC has made this move. It is, in fact, their second concession, the first in response to Greenpeace's campaign in recent months. Go, KFC!

Go vegan and no animals will be harmed or killed. Don't trust KFC.

Forget KFC--think of all the abused chickens that end up in those containers--yuck. Go veg. You do not need to chew on a dead animal.

Sorry to disagree, but back in the 60 I went veggie and nearly died. My doctor explained that generally vegetarianism is good if handled correctly, but some people like me had to have meat. However I quit going to KFC years ago as I found theirs nearly inedible. Love that chicken from Popeye's. ;o)

This is not to excuse inhumane handling of chiskens. Chickens are people too.

Stupid me, I thought this article might have something to do with the absolutely deplorable conditions the chickens are forced to live in: 24 hours of complete darkness to ensure that they keep eating nonstop, unable to move while being packed into a pen with no room to spare, the floor covered with a mix of fattening GMO 'food' and their own feces. If only we could lock up the executives of Yum in such conditions, that would be true justice.

BTW, KFC chicken is the most disgusting and unnatural poultry item behind the jumbo 'turkey' leg. Those chickens are so morbidly obese that there are yellow globs of fat inside the muscle, even in the middle of the breast meat. I have never seen anything like it in any other chicken or turkey. YUM is a despicable corporation, YUCK is more like it!
