On July 16, 2020, the USDA accepted a petition from the National Chicken Council to allow slaughterhouses to process birds infected with Avian Leukosis. The infection causes a condition akin to cancer in chickens, where malignant tumors and lesions can develop.

Processors will be allowed to simply cut the tumors off and process the rest of the bird. Yes, tumors are now “trimmable”.

Please tell the USDA that we do not want to be sold chickens that are diseased and have had tumors cut out of them.
