ALDF filed a lawsuit against the USDA

13 June, 2021

The Animal Legal Defense Fund (ALDF) filed a federal lawsuit challenging the government’s approval of poultry labels generally and the approval of labels for certain Perdue Farms products in particular. The U.S. Department of Agriculture violated the Poultry Products Inspection Act by its “consistent and categorical failure to consider graphics when reviewing and approving poultry product labels,” ALDF alleges in a complaint in the U.S. District Court for the District of Columbia.
The USDA is required by the Poultry Products Inspection Act to prevent the use in the marketplace of labels bearing false images that deceive consumers about the lives led by the animals raised for the products.
