Did These Brutally Treated Chickens End up in Your Chick-fil

There’s chicken in a chicken sandwich—obviously—but one animal rights group wants to show you how horrible that chicken’s life is before it’s made into a meal.

An undercover investigation captured how “Every Chick-fil-A sandwich is filled with horrific animal abuse,” according to the Los Angeles–based Mercy for Animals website.

The investigation looked at chicken facilities in Tennessee and Mississippi—both owned by Chicago-based Koch Foods—using brutal tactics to house and slaughter chickens. In the video, birds are mercilessly slammed into transport cages, their throats are slit, and they’re dropped into scalding hot water while still alive.

Mercy for Animals asserts the farm and slaughterhouse supply Chick-fil-A with chicken breasts for their menu.

But in a statement, Chick-fil-A said Koch Foods hasn’t supplied its restaurants since April 2013.

“As a values-based organization, we strictly partner with suppliers who share in our goal of responsible environmental stewardship and maintain our values throughout all animal welfare and management practices,” the company said.

But Mercy for Animals director of education Nick Cooney disputed Chick-fil-A’s claim, telling CBS Chicago that the group has audio and video recordings documenting that the Koch Food facilities did, and still do, supply Chick-fil-A.

“We think it’s unfortunate that Chick-Fil-A is trying to distance itself from the abuse,” Cooney said in an interview with CBS.

Matt Rice, Mercy for Animals director of investigations, told The Associated Press that no laws have been broken, as chickens aren’t covered by federal animal slaughter rules.

“Tell Chick-fil-A to end its disgusting treatment of chickens by adopting stronger animal welfare standards to prevent the cruelty you’ve just witnessed,” Sam Simon, The Simpsons cocreator, said in a statement on behalf of Mercy for Animals.

Such footage may never have been shot had not Tennessee Gov. Bill Haslam vetoed an “ag-gag” bill in 2013 that would have discouraged undercover investigations of animal abuse.
