Transcript of UNETHICAL PRACTICES OF KFC

Kentucky Fried Chicken (KFC) Corporation, based in Louisville,Kentucky, is the world's most widespread chicken restaurant chain offering services to more than 12 million customers in 109countries all around the world. KFC operates more than 5,200restaurants in the United States and more than 15,000 units around the world.
INTRODUCTION
Background of the Ethical Issue

Recently KFC faced accusation from non government organizations like PETA and Greenpeace regarding unethical practices from KFC’s supply chain such as Pilgrim’s Pride and Cargill. KFC was accused of ill-treatment towards its chicken by PETA and Greenpeace blamed KFC for its role in the destruction of the Amazon rainforest.
Due to poor wages and working conditions, employees used the chickens as a means to vent frustrations and alleviate boredom.

They twisted the bird’s heads off, spat tobacco into their eyes

and mouths, spray-painted their faces, used them as footballs and squeezed their bodies so hardthat the birds expelled faeces.
FRUSTRATED WORKERS
The chickens are stuffed by tens of thousands into overcrowded sheds where they hardly find space to move freely. To save space and avoid chicken hurting each other, the sensitive chickenbeaks are cut off with hot blade without giving any painkillers.Overcrowding and poor litter quality in the farms also caused painful ammonia burns on the chickens. The injured chickens received no treatment and had to bear the pain throughout theirlife.
