Animal Law Podcast #65: The Case of the Not-So-“Natural” Chicken

Mariann Sullivan 28 October 2020 46


Background
share close

On this episode of the Animal Law Podcast, I speak with Jay Shooster, of the Richman Law Group, about two complaints the firm has filed with the Federal Trade Commission, on behalf of various complainants, about representations Tyson Foods has made about the chicken flesh that it sells in grocery stores around the country. From whether the products made of that flesh are “natural,” to environmental concerns regarding its production methods, to allegations regarding the welfare of the birds, to how its workers are treated, particularly in Covid-times, Tyson’s practices are being laid bare by these complaints, and it’s not a pretty picture.

Jay Shooster is an associate and the Senior Animal Welfare Legal Fellow at Richman Law Group. Jay has represented nonprofits and consumers in numerous cases against large food companies, including Tyson Foods, Kraft Heinz, and Unilever.

Join Animal Law professor and longtime activist Mariann Sullivan as she unpacks the latest updates, cases, and news from the burgeoning world of animal law.
