Foster Farms investigating its facilities after undercover video released
Poultry producer Foster Farms has launched a comprehensive investigation into its Fresno, CA facilities after an animal rights group published an online video depicted workers ripping out feathers of live birds, throwing birds and slamming chickens into metal shackles.
Fresno police say they are investigating the allegations in response to a complaint from Mercy for Animals.
Foster Farms called the behavior in the video inappropriate and “counter to our stringent animal welfare standards, procedures and policies.
The company is in full cooperation with authorities.
