Another Mercy for Animals video

Mercy for Animal’s most recent target with its tactic of a hidden-camera video is fighting back.

Koch Foods of Tennessee says Mercy for Animals’ video has been edited to present  “inaccurate and out-of-context depictions of its chicken processing plant”.

“The chicken processing business is a highly regulated industry … and our company works hard every day to ensure our employees and contractors follow strict regulations … and guidelines from the National Chicken Council (NCC),” said chief executive officer Joe Grendys.

The company issued a response saying it has been in the poultry business for more than 25 years and that the Tennessee facility featured in the video has 16 inspectors on each production shift.
