We held a silent demonstration this evening @chilis on behalf of @mercyforanimals. 🐔
Chili’s has fallen behind its competitors by allowing its suppliers to cruelly abuse chickens in ways other chains have already banned.
Many of Chili’s competitors, including TGI Fridays, BJ’s Restaurants, Red Robin, Panera Bread, Chipotle, and dozens of other chains, have pledged to adopt Global Animal Partnership (GAP) chicken welfare standards and end live-shackle slaughter—that is, chaining chickens by their feet and dragging them through electrified water before cutting their throats; all while the bird is fully conscious. Chili’s tries to convince consumers that it has made commitments similar to those of its competitors. But Chili’s standards fail to address the most urgent welfare issues in the company’s supply chain. Unlike other major food companies, Chili’s published policy fails to meet the criteria endorsed by leading farmed animal protection organizations in the U.S.
If you love animals, please don't support this cruelty.
Chili's = animal abuse 👎🏼
