PETA is going after Wendy’s again, but this time they are taking a different path. The People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals, which has purchased 120 shares of stock in Wendy’s, has filed a shareholder resolution urging the company to adopt a more humane policy for slaughtering chickens.
The group wants the fast-food chain to implement controlled-atmosphere killing (CAK). CAK is a USDA-approved method of slaughtering chickens where the oxygen is slowly replaced with an inert gas that puts chickens to sleep quickly and painlessly.
The resolution will be formally presented at Wendy’s annual shareholder meeting later this year.
