Animal Equality filed a lawsuit against Foster Poultry Farms (“Foster Farms”), the largest poultry producer on the West Coast, in relation to the animal protection organization’s undercover investigation that revealed acts of crushing, drowning, and mutilation of chicks in apparent violation of California’s cruelty to animals laws. The lawsuit seeks a court order prohibiting Foster Farms from engaging in business practices that violate California law. Animal Equality is represented by Advancing Law for Animals.
