From Jenny DB and Katie C:

We both have fond memories of Costco. Whether it was going on Costco runs with our families or having it be one of our go-to stores. As a kid, it was amazing how many wondrous things they had in that enormous building. They had everything from toys and books to free food samples and gadgets. Costco has always been a family store where people can find the products they want at affordable prices. It’s had a reputation for treating its employees well and providing high wages. However, everything at Costco is not as shiny and wonderful as we once thought. 

We were shocked and saddened to read the New York Times Investigation that revealed the grossly inadequate conditions Costco chickens endure at their supply farms. Due to these unsanitary living conditions and their inhumane treatment, too many chickens die only days after being born. The chickens on Costco farms face tremendous overcrowding and often experience painful health problems. These birds are forced to live in their own waste, which leads many to develop burns from the ammonia in their litter. 

What is perhaps even more shocking than the investigation, is that leadership at Costco thinks this animal cruelty is “normal and uneventful activity.” This is not okay! Costco can do better. Over 200 companies have adopted the Better Chicken Commitment and Costco should too!

Join us in letting Costco know its members will not not condone the inhumane treatment of animals.
