In a new investigative report, Equalia reports on the consequences of current cruel practices towards chickens in a farm related to a provider of Carrefour Spain.
1. High density of chickens. Scientific advice states that disproportionate density leads to greater risk of virulent outbreaks with potential for transmission to humans.
2. Breeding of rapid-growth breeds, which leads to so-called "production" diseases such as ascites, sudden death syndrome or contact dermatitis.
3. Non-compliance with minimum standards for environmental enrichment, which prevents the development of natural behaviours.
4. Slaughter by electric bath. Birds are immersed in electrified water as a method of stunning prior to slaughter. The European Commission points out that a ban on this process is necessary because of the animal suffering involved.
5. Lack of third-party audits and public reporting.
These practices reflect the lack of interest shown by Carrefour Spain in adapting to the minimum poultry welfare requirements as the company has already done in France and Poland.
