Norfolk, Va. – Tyson is releasing heart-shaped chicken nuggets for Valentine’s Day and calling them “Nuggets of Love”—but PETA says they’re nothing but heartbreak. Please see the following statement from PETA President Ingrid Newkirk:

This is a cheap marketing ploy by an operation desperate to disguise the fact that its nuggets are made from the mutilated bodies of tormented little birds who never received an ounce of love or compassion. Instead of offering true “love nuggets” with its vegan Raised & Rooted line and satisfying the booming demand for vegan fare, Tyson chose cruel business as usual—and rest assured that PETA will be confronting its top brass at next month’s annual meeting over the failure.

PETA—whose motto reads, in part, that “animals are not ours to eat”—opposes speciesism, a human-supremacist worldview. For more information, please visit PETA.org or follow the group on Twitter, Facebook, or Instagram.
