Tyson Foods Investigates Animal Abuse Charges

Tyson Foods has been accused of animal abuse and unsanitary conditions by PETA.

The Springdale, Ark.-based company started the investigation after People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals, a nonprofit that promotes vegetarianism and animal welfare, sent an undercover investigator into both plants last fall. PETA put grainy video shot by that investigator online this week, contending it shows plant workers urinating near processing lines, throwing chickens and condoning animal abuse.

"Some of the videotaped activities we've seen online do warrant investigation; however, others are being misrepresented and sensationalized by PETA," Tyson said in a statement it released on Thursday.
