Whistleblower Farmer Files Retaliation Complaint Against Perdue Chicken Company

A program affiliated with the watchdog group the Government Accountability Project (GAP) has filed a whistleblower retaliation complaint against Perdue. The complaint alleges Perdue initiated intimidation tactics against a farmer who exposed serious chicken welfare concerns.

“This is an historic event, the first case and filing of its kind in the U.S., where a contract farmer and whistleblower files a lawsuit of this nature against a large poultry producer. This landmark filing marks a first step in an effort for contract farmers to have the right to speak out against unfair and inhumane conditions on large-scale farms.”–Govt. Accountability Project

According to published reports, Perdue has denied that the North Carolina farm depicted in the video (below) reflect its animal welfare standards.
