Chickens killed for McDonald's are slaughtered using an outdated method that results in extreme suffering. As one of the biggest sellers of chicken meat, McDonald's has the responsibility—and the ability—to reduce this abuse by demanding that its U.S. and Canadian suppliers use a less cruel slaughter method.

PETA's original McCruelty campaign logo
In the slaughterhouses of McDonald's U.S. and Canadian chicken suppliers, birds are dumped out of their transport crates and hung upside down in metal shackles, which can result in broken bones, extreme bruising, and hemorrhaging. Workers have the opportunity to abuse live birds, and birds have their throats cut while they are still conscious. Many birds are immersed in tanks of scalding-hot water while they are still alive and able to feel pain.

In 2000, following the launch of PETA's (original) McCruelty campaign, McDonald's made some basic animal welfare improvements. Since that time, the company has refused to eliminate the worst abuses that its chickens suffer, including abuses during slaughter. This cruelty could be illegal if dogs or cats—or even pigs or cows—were the victims.

There is a less cruel method of slaughter available today that would eliminate these abuses, yet McDonald's refuses to require its U.S. and Canadian suppliers to switch to it.

Help Stop McDonald's Cruelty Now!

Almost everyone has heard of McDonald's, and most people have eaten at the chain at least once, but many people don't know about the horrific cruelty that goes into every portion of chicken served under the Golden Arches. In the slaughterhouses of McDonald's U.S. and Canadian chicken suppliers, birds are dumped out of their transport crates and hung upside-down in metal shackles, which often results in broken bones, extreme bruising, and hemorrhaging. Workers have the opportunity to abuse live birds, and birds have their throats cut while they are still conscious. Many birds are immersed in tanks of scalding-hot water while they are still alive and able to feel pain.

McDonald's has the ability to end these abuses.

A less cruel, USDA-approved method of chicken slaughter called "controlled-atmosphere killing," or CAK, [http://www.mccruelty.com/CAKSlaughter.aspx] is now being used in the U.S., and it would cost McDonald's nothing to demand that its suppliers adopt it. CAK would eliminate the worst abuses currently suffered by chickens killed for McDonald's. In fact, a 2005 study about CAK produced by McDonald's concluded that it is far better for animals than the current slaughter method.Fortunately, some companies are taking action: Chicken suppliers Bell & Evans in Pennsylvania and Mary's Chickens in California are switching from the standard method of chicken slaughter to CAK. McDonald's, which claims to be a leader in animal welfare, has no excuse for sitting back and allowing chickens killed for its restaurants to suffer broken wings and legs and be scalded to death in defeathering tanks while other companies phase in this less cruel slaughter method.A less cruel, USDA-approved method of chicken slaughter called "controlled-atmosphere killing," or CAK, is now being used in the U.S., and it would cost McDonald's nothing to demand that its suppliers adopt it.

Write to McDonald's now, and demand that it phase in the exclusive use of chickens killed by CAK by requiring that its suppliers switch to this method.

Dear [Decision Maker],


* (Edit Letter Below) I was shocked to learn that even though McDonald's knows (through your own investigation and the experience of your European suppliers) that controlled-atmosphere killing (CAK) could eliminate the worst abuses that chickens killed for your restaurants suffer, you still refuse to require your suppliers in the U.S. and Canada to adopt this slaughter method. McDonald's has no excuse for allowing chickens to suffer broken wings and legs and be scalded to death in defeathering tanks while other companies phase in the less violent method. Please require your suppliers to switch to CAK immediately in order to reduce the suffering of millions of chickens killed each year for your restaurants.

Sincerely,
[Your Name]
