Chipotle:
Stop Hiding Violence Behind “Humane” Marketing!

Our latest investigation of a Pennsylvania chicken farm that supplies Chipotle exposed thousands of birds crammed together in filthy, industrial sheds, many of them injured as a result of being bred to grow at an unnaturally rapid pace. Join us in asking the CEO of Chipotle to stop lying to the public with humane marketing like their slogan "food with integrity."

The Real Life of Chipotle's Chickens


The Real Life of Chipotle's Chickens


A former Chipotle manager has secretly obtained footage tying the company to cruel factory farms where birds are starving, crowded, and collapsed on the floor of a filthy industrial shed. Contrary to the bucolic imagery in Chipotle ads and manuals, the investigation found thousands of birds confined in a single, filthy shed. Even as babies, the chicks are crowded together, and many were starving, injured, or dead.


Crowding

From the day they are born, chickens on the Bell and Evans farm are surrounded by thousands of other birds and never have a moment of peace.

Injury

Splay leg was a common injury in the barn as a result of being bred to grow rapidly, and the afflicted birds struggled to get to food or water.

Death

DxE investigators found many dead and rotting birds among the living, likely having died from disease or starvation.
