Perdue Response to Alleged Animal Abuse Investigation
Salisbury, Md. (Wednesday, December 9, 2015)
We have seen the video taken by Mercy for Animals on a farm raising chickens for Perdue. We are appalled by the mistreatment and abuse by a contract catching crew and a farm worker shown in the video. We are committed to working with law enforcement to identify everyone involved and hope the Mercy for Animals will cooperate to facilitate those efforts. We are committed to taking aggressive actions to hold those involved accountable and prevent similar behavior in the future.
