HSUS Sues Perdue Farms

HSUS announces a lawsuit against poultry producer Perdue Farms.

The Humane Society of the United States (HSUS) announced that it is filing a class-action lawsuit against a poultry producer, New Jersey’s Perdue Farms Inc., due to the company’s false marketing of “humane” factory-farmed poultry. The suit states that Perdue’s marketing tactics are not in line with the New Jersey Consumer Fraud Act, and that its marketing standards are actually derived from the National Chicken Council, an industry trade group. “The National Chicken Council Animal Welfare audit has a scoring system that is so lax that it allows plans or farms with really bad practices to pass,” animal-slaughter expert Temple Grandin said.
