The animal agriculture industry abuses animals, abuses
workers and destroys the environment. It’s not surprising to learn
that some factory farms and slaughterhouses also illegally employ
underage workers. This is the case of House of Raeford, one of the
largest poultry processors in the country, which was fined this week
by the United States Department of Labor for illegally employing
underage workers at its chicken slaughter plant in Duplin County,
NC. Moreover, this is their second violation in the past four years
and this is the same slaughterhouse that made national headlines
when it was exposed by an Mercy For Animals investigation in 2007
revealing egregious cruelty to chickens and turkeys.

We cannot possibly call ourselves good stewards of God's
Creation when supporting an industry that causes so much suffering!
It's time to wake up and to stand up for compassion, justice and
love. A plant-based diet is an integral part of waking up.
