Tyson Foods is a corporation that many families around the world trust with their processed chicken dinners. Does the voice of these consumers not come into account, when they do not know that the chickens they are eating are being injected with antibiotics while the company labels their chicken antibiotic free? Tyson chicken as admitted to doing this even after being told by the USDA (United States Department of Agriculture) to stop using the label; they sued them and won the right to use the label.

The workers who are injecting your chicken dinner with antibiotics are being treated horribly. They are being denied the right to take bathroom breaks. What to most is seen as a right is given to these workers as a five-minute privilege. Holding in these urge causes health problems in this industry. Many Tyson workers have resorted to using diapers while on the job.

The Tyson code of conduct states that Tyson has a “long-standing commitment to the well-being, proper handling, and humane slaughter of all animals used in its food products.” This policy seems to promote an ethical agricultural practice of raising, slaughtering, and preparing the animals. However, in countless situations this policy has been violated. Yet in most cases, Tyson has denied or not acknowledged these issues.

This corporation is in need of improvements to become more sustainable and ethical in their production. Firstly, they could change their preparation ways to one more considerate of workers’ health by not injecting their chicken eggs with antibiotics. Tyson should stop falsely labeling their chickens “antibiotic free” if they continue to use pre-hatch antibiotics. Corporate America, especially Tyson’s Chicken, must make these changes if they want to continue to be the number one provider of chicken to this country in an ever-changing food industry aiming for antibiotic free products.
