Tyson Employees Expose Co-workers’ Animal Abuse

Tyson Foods fires two employees and suspends others after poultry workers shoot video showing “poor animal handling.”

Tyson Foods Inc., the world’s largest meat processor and marketer, fired two employees last week after fellow workers caught them on video mishandling chickens at contract farms in Virginia. A county court notified managers of the poultry plant about the video, which resulted in the company taking action. In a statement, Tyson said, “Two of the employees who clearly mishandled birds were terminated immediately,” adding that “other employees are on suspension pending a full investigation.” The video, the company said, showed employees engaging in “poor animal handling” but has not given any further details or released the footage publicly.
