KFC’s Lies Exposed

Written by PETA | September 16, 2011

KFC has had to pull false advertising from its Australian website after a flap with a consumer watchdog group.  

KFC had touted that chickens raised for the brand were “free to roam” on farms. But cramming chickens so tightly inside filthy, windowless sheds that they can barely take a step or lift a wing doesn’t exactly qualify as “free roaming.” When the Australian Competition and Consumer Commission launched legal action against a KFC supplier for false claims on the supplier’s website, KFC backpedaled.


If only KFC were forced to do the same stateside, where the company has refused the recommendations of its own animal welfare advisors to eliminate the worst abuses of chickens, such as scalding birds to death.

Until KFC stops the charade, tell the company that you aren’t buying it, and ask it to eliminate the worst abuses of chickens.

    I have never heard of or seen a more shameful way of treating animals than the way Kentucky Fried Chicken does. I have seen the documentary “Earthlings”. Live animals offered living conditions so unbelievably sad and miserable, a living hell. Live animals killed in the most brutal manors. It is incomprehensible. We are talking about living creatures, made of the same flesh and blood as you and I are. Where is your compassion? Where is your decency? Where is your ethics? Where is your realism? Do you really feel you rightly can call yourselves “human”? You are nothing but monsters. People like you who will do anything for profit, anything – I can not find words for your evil. You make the lives of millions of living creatures living nightmares. People like you make people like me swear to be vegetarian. You must have the courage to change your business concept – in the end every one of us will have to pay for the evil deeds we have comitted.

    Stop abusing chickens, don’t scald them to death.

  • susanna says:

    I am dissapointed at KFC! A big company worldwide should not need to act in this barbaric way. Set a good example! I hope people find out how u kill your chicken. Shame!

  • Dilma says:

    Not surprised. People like them will keep doing it until they get tired, that’s why I don’t go to that place, and I don’t eat meat either, plus we don’t need meat to survive or for health. Please do something PETA…
