Cargill’s Turkey Controversy

Cargill is now under fire for saying that its turkeys are raised by family farmers.

Six non-profit organizations filed a complaint with the Federal Trade Commission saying that the statement is misleading because the turkeys actually come from large, corporate controlled factory farms.

Cargill stated it “conducts business in a legal, ethical, and responsible manner. We believe the claims lack merit and are proud to offer our customers and consumers safe, wholesome and great tasting turkey products.”
