Smithfield is one of the biggest factory farms and animal abusers in the U.S.! Their factory farms are contributing to much of our water and air pollution too. McDonalds is one of the unhealthiest places to eat and supports animal cruelty by its continued patronage of Smithfield and large industrial farms who show no concern for the suffering of so many animals that they are profiting from.

Oh my goodness. McDonald's claim to be all about compassion in farming. Shame on them for using meat from pigs who cannot move or experience any kind of life. Animals surely have a right to some kind of life before they give up their lives for meat eaters. They are not inanimate. They are sentient beings. This practice should be BANNED. And McDonald's needs to stop using animals subjected to such horror RIGHT NOW.

Thanks Yrna. Glady signed and noted.. I find it morally disgusting that many little three year old will be sitting in McDonalds eating the flesh of pigs who have not only got the same amount of intellect as THEY have, but have also been so cruelly abused!! McDonalds.. You and your food STINKS!!!!! GRRR!!!!!!

Thank you so much for taking action guys, your concerned is greatly appreciated! 650 signatures up to today, apparently because this petitions have been placed on sustainable food category instead of in the animal issue making it a bit slow in gathering signatures. Please keep sharing guys.
