Factory Farm Whistleblower Unveils Disturbing Video

Does ‘sustainable’ farming really mean what you think it does? We’ve all seen the concerning images and videos depicting abused and sickly animals set for sale for the lowest possible price point, but very few have seen inside of a major ‘sustainable’ factory farm that even the USDA says passes its standard of care.

Watch the video here.

A North Carolina contractor for meat processing giant Perdue has now unveiled what truly happens behind these ‘better’ farming operations that we are made to believe are the much better option for ourselves and our families. The result: a very disturbing reminder to eat a high quality organic diet:

As a contractor for Perdue, farmer Craig Watts says he is contractually obligated to ensure that the chickens destined for your dinner table do not receive any form of sunlight or fresh air. In addition, the chickens are forced to lay not only on their own bed of feces, but feces that has accumulated for around the past year. This is because the floors are not cleaned between each import of new chickens, leading to thick layers of feces, other bodily fluids, limbs, and other items accumulating to the point where the underbellies of the chickens are worn red and their feathers are rubbed clean off.

Is it any wonder that around 97% of all chicken products have been found to be tainted with harmful bacteria?

This is what millions around the world are paying for with their hard earned dollar, and it’s what major factory farms are selling off as ‘organic.’ Always remember that whenever corporations can use natural-style ‘buzz words’ to draw in customers without actually staying true to these labels, they most certainly will.

It’s up to you to purchase high quality organic items for you and your family, and to support initiatives to retake words like ‘natural’ away from corporations that would rather pay animal cruelty fines than change their practices.

Perdue farmer Craig Watts is likely in for a round of contractual lawsuits, however if Perdue is smart, they will not publicly sue Mr. Watts in order to avoid public backlash. I would expect, rather, for the company to issue a statement that Mr. Watts is in fact the individual responsible for the poor treatment, and that they are ‘evaluating’ their procedures.
