Animal Law Podcast #49: The Case of Pilgrim’s Pride’s Shame
Play • 40 min
On this episode of the Animal Law Podcast, I speak with Laura Fox of the Humane Society of the United States about administrative efforts to address false and deceptive advertising from Pilgrim's Pride regarding their treatment of chickens.  These efforts include a complaint made to the Federal Trade Commission asking it to investigate the advertising and enjoin Pilgrim’s Pride from continuing to issue misleading claims pertaining to animal welfare, as well as subsequent requests for similar enforcement to state consumer protection agencies and attorneys general. Additionally, a complaint was made to the Securities and Exchange Commission about possible stakeholder fraud in violation of federal securities laws, also pertaining to the false and deceptive claims made by Pilgrim’s Pride about humane treatment.
