They are one of the top producers of factory farmed animals. Factory farmed means: caged in a minimum of space, fed antibiotics and medications to keep the animals healthy. Fed the cheapest feed (in many cases genetically modified and sprayed with horrendous crap). I personally will not buy anything from them. I 100% disagree with this type of raising animals for meat. They are not interested in quality, only quantity and the animals suffer, a lot. As do we, when we eat them. I am firmly convinced that it is people like this place that are making us sick with their "safe" food. Most of our food comes from just a few companies. Those companies cut corners, use questionable practices and do not care a bit for our health. Watch the documentary FOOD, INC if you want to see how their poultry is raised and then butchered. The more you know, the more informed choices you can make. I laugh every time KFC commercial comes on about wholesome Tyson chickens. Uh huh, right.
