KFC Denies PETA’s Claims

LOUISVILLE, KY, January 07, 2003 – KFC is committed to the well being and humane treatment of chickens and we require all of our suppliers to follow welfare guidelines developed by us with leading experts on our Animal Welfare Advisory Council. Our suppliers are receiving unannounced audits at their poultry facilities throughout the year. Failure to comply with our strict guidelines would result in termination of our supplier agreement if remedial action is not taken.Additionally, we have taken a leadership role with our trade associations to establish standardized guidelines for the entire poultry industry, including quick service restaurants. Our expectation is that these industry-wide guidelines will be completed in February.
