Chicken Slaughter Practices Used by Fast-Food Chain's Suppliers Raise Group's Ire

Oak Brook, Ill. -- Holding signs that read, "Jim Skinner: Stop McCruelty!" PETA supporters will protest outside the home of McDonald's President and CEO Jim Skinner on Saturday. Because the fast-food chain has cut off behind-the-scenes communication with PETA, the organization is now appealing to the family members, friends, and neighbors of McDonald's executives. PETA is asking those close to the execs to hold them accountable for not requiring the company's U.S. suppliers to switch to a less cruel chicken slaughter method that has been approved by the U.S. Department of Agriculture and is already used by McDonald's European suppliers.
When: Saturday, July 10, 10 a.m.–12 noon
Where: Entrance to Breakenridge Farm, intersection of Adams and Breakenridge Farm roads, Oak Brook
"Millions of chickens are slaughtered each year for McDonald's U.S. outlets," says PETA Senior Vice President Dan Mathews. "With a stroke of his pen, Jim Skinner could stop the most flagrant abuses that these birds suffer. He needs to stop clucking around and do the right thing."
McDonald's American suppliers are under fire for using an archaic killing method in which birds often suffer from broken wings and broken legs, have their throats cut while they are still conscious, and are scalded to death in defeathering tanks. By requiring its U.S. suppliers to update their slaughter methods, McDonald's could eliminate all these abuses.
