Chickens Tortured for McNuggets, “Just Mayo” Under Attack!


Stop Torturing Chickens for McNuggets

Hidden-camera exposes cruelty behind McDonald’s Chicken McNuggets

The hidden ingredient in McDonald’s Chicken McNuggets is brutal animal cruelty.

That’s the finding of a new Mercy For Animals undercover investigation at a McDonald’s Chicken McNugget supplier—Tyson Foods—that exposed horrific animal abuse, including:

  • Birds painfully beaten, stabbed, and impaled on makeshift clubs spiked with nails and then thrown into buckets to slowly die
  • Factory farm owners stepping on the heads of live chickens and then pulling their wings or bodies to break their necks
  • Chickens bred to grow so fast they became crippled under their own weight and frequently died from organ failure
  • Hundreds of thousands of birds crammed into filthy, windowless sheds forced to live for weeks in their own waste

After six short weeks, the surviving birds are grabbed by their legs, wings, and necks and violently slammed into transport crates—often suffering broken bones in the process—and trucked to slaughter. Read more.

FDA Requires Egg in Mayonnaise

Learn more about Hampton Creek

Hampton Creek Foods, makers of the vegan product Just Mayo, received a warning letter from the FDA demanding that they either add eggs to their product or change the name. Decades old FDA standards require a product called “mayonnaise” to have eggs in the ingredients.

Please sign the Change.org petition and let the FDA know that this rule is outdated and ridiculous. Just Mayo not only improves the health and environmental impact of traditional mayonnaise, it relieves the suffering of hens by reducing the demand for eggs.

You can also send an e-mail to the following officials at the FDA directly:
