This is another reason HSUS must be stopped. This, in my opinion,is intimidation plain and simple.
Perdue to remove Humanly Raised from Labels
A settlement with the Humane Society of the United Stated by Perdue farms means the company will remove the “Humanely Raised” claim from product packaging. Meatingplace reports the federal cases were related to the Perdue Farms Harvestland chicken labels. The settlement requires the plaintiffs to dismiss their claims with prejudice, in exchange for Perdue agreeing to remove the “Humanely Raised” label claim. General Counsel for Perdue Farms, Herb Frerichs stated “Perdue rejects the plaintiffs’ allegations and maintains that its labels are not misleading in any way. Nonetheless, it has agreed to discontinue the labeling claim at issue.” Further, he stated Purdue is committed to raising animals safely and humanely.
The proposed class action cases were filed in 2010 and 2013 by individual consumers who contended that Perdue’s “Humanely Raised” claim on the packaging of its Harvestland brand chicken was misleading. Perdue vigorously opposed those claims.
