The answer: surprisingly little. A new Mercy For Animals undercover investigation reveals sickening cruelty to animals at Foster Farms—an American Humane Certified poultry producer—including birds scalded alive and workers throwing, punching, and tormenting chickens before violently shackling them upside down to have their throats cut open.Learn More
Foster Farms chickens have been bred to grow so fast they often suffer painful leg deformities. Crammed into windowless sheds, their lives are filled with misery.
At this American Humane Certified chicken factory farm, workers carelessly throw baby chicks onto the ground with no regard for their welfare.
Workers punch, beat, and torment animals before violently slamming them into metal shackles and sending them to have their throats cut open.
The best way for individual consumers to help end this cruelty is to leave animals off their plate entirely.
