BJ’s Restaurants: Stop supporting cruelty to chickens!
This petition made change with 5,355 supporters!
BJ’s Restaurant and Brewhouse is one of the top restaurant chains in the U.S. with over 180 locations across the country. BJ's restaurants are known for its award winning beer and Southern California cuisine, but what it doesn't let customers know is that the chickens in its supply chain endure horrific abuse and cruelty. Despite public outcry, BJ’s has failed to adopt a meaningful animal welfare measure to protect the chickens it purchases each year.
Crammed inside filthy, windowless sheds by the tens of thousands. Bred to grow grotesquely large at an unnaturally fast rate. Violently shackled, electrocuted, and slit at their throats, some while fully conscious. These abuses are not what you’d expect from an award-winning restaurant, but they’re the sad reality for chickens raised for BJ’s Restaurant and Brewhouse supply chain.
Following efforts from The Humane League, several major restaurant chains, including Starbucks, Chipotle, and Panera have released comprehensive chicken welfare policies to address the myriad forms of cruelty to chickens in their supply chains. Until BJ’s Restaurants joins its competitors and commits to addressing the cruelty in its supply chain, we encourage customers to join the growing movement of consumers boycotting restaurants that do not take animal abuse seriously.
Please, sign our petition and let BJ’s Restaurant know that you won’t be dining at its restaurants until it adopts a meaningful animal welfare policy that spares birds from the worst abuses they currently endure in its supply chain.
