Wendy’s Ups Welfare Standards

Wendy's has announced that it will be adopting new welfare standards for its chicken and pork sources.

Fast-food giant Wendy’s Co. announced Friday that it will be implementing new criteria for the care and slaughtering processes of the chickens and pigs sourced for its meat products. The chain’s animal-welfare council explained that one of the company’s largest chicken suppliers has discontinued the use of electric shocks to stun chickens, instead opting for a newer, more humane method that utilizes a low-atmosphere pressure system. Additionally, Wendy’s will be phasing out the use of gestation crates at its pork-producing facilities, following the lead of McDonald’s, which made the same pledge in February. With 6,500 locations worldwide, Wendy’s is the second largest burger chain in the country.
