ACTION

Tyson's materials claim it provides "favorable" and "comfortable" environments for the pigs and chickens in their care, while the truth is that Tyson is responsible for some of the cruelest conditions for animals in the factory farming industry. For the safety of millions of pigs and chickens, and for the protection of truth-in-advertising, we urge the FTC to act immediately to stop Tyson.

INFORMATION / TALKING POINTS

As the largest U.S. producer of chicken and second largest producer of beef and pork, Tyson's presence in the animal product industry extends across the nation. The corporation relies on controversial "broiler houses" for its production of chickens, and gestations crates for its pregnant sows—these crates have been banned in nine states for animal cruelty. Undercover investigations reveal systematic abuse of animals in Tyson supplier slaughterhouses. And yet, Tyson gets away with leading consumers to think it treats animals with compassion.

Animals need the FTC to act on ALDF's legal action immediately. Millions of animals are being harmed by Tyson, and every day more consumers are misled.
