Nando’s and Asda chicken: Birds ‘stepped on and left convulsing and wounded in scenes of suffering and cannibalism
In grisly video taken by secret cameras, dead birds appeared to be left among the living, leading to cannibalism, while workers stepped on and kicked flocks in sheds.
Some suffered red, raw skin from feather loss and many were collapsed under their own weight, another video showed.
The “harrowing scenes of painful abuse” were shot in two separate investigations at farms run by one of the UK’s largest food businesses and endorsed by the Red Tractor scheme.
The company supplies the supermarkets and Nando’s restaurants with whole chickens and chicken products including ready meals and sliced meat.
