Earlier this year, animal welfare organizations discovered a troubling fact: Perdue Farms was misleading its customers with labels that were simply untrue.
The labels in question included poultry products claiming to be "humanely raised" and "cage-free." Nothing could be further from the truth.
The animals are treated poorly and forced to live in conditions no better than a factory farm. In order to make a buck off of unaware customers, Perdue Farms slapped a "humane" label on the product, hoping no one would know.
After several violations and a letter from The Animal Welfare Institute, Perdue Farms refused to change the labels nor provide a better habitat for the animals.
Late in November, the Humane Society of the United States had enough of Perdue's ridiculous labels, and filed a lawsuit against the company.
Costco, a major national chain, is a large supplier of Perdue Farms products. Tell Coscto to stop carrying Perdue Farms products.
