Demand Poison-Free Chicken Meat

Chicken meat arsenic

Target: Ian Read, Vice President of Pfizer, Inc

Goal: All arsenic-laden chicken feed be removed from all of the world’s retail shelves

For sixty years the FDA and the poultry industry have tried to keep secret the harm caused by arsenic used in conventional chicken feed. They have claimed that the arsenic is passed out of the birds through feces, when in fact the poison remains in the meat of the birds. Even though this information has been made public, a particular chicken-feed producer refuses to pull its product off of shelves in countries that do not force them to do so. Urge this poisoning feed producer to remove arsenic from its feed recipe.

Arsenic is a proven carcinogen, or cancer-causing chemical. Not only is the poison harmful to the chickens ingesting it, it is harmful to humans if consumed in large amounts. Alpharma LLC, a subsidiary company of Pfizer- the company that makes vaccines for children- produces chicken feed containing arsenic and is only agreeing to take its poisonous feed off of shelves if it is forced to do so. Alpharma LLC sells this feed in a dozen other countries besides the United States.

Refusing to pull an obviously harmful feed from shelves is inconceivable and should not be tolerated. Arsenic should not be put into anything meant to be consumed, either by animals or humans. A company that is obviously more concerned with profits than the well-being of animals and humans has no place in the future of our world. Demand that Alpharma LLC remove its arsenic-laden feed from every shelf it inhabits. Demand that the company stop putting arsenic in feed altogether. Sign this petition for a healthier tomorrow.


Dear Ian C. Read,

Pfizer’s subsidiary company has recently been under fire for producing chicken feed laden with arsenic. Alpharma LLC has been exposed by the FDA for dangerous amounts of arsenic in its feed. It was once believed that arsenic in feed was not a big deal; chickens apparently excreted the arsenic through their feces, lending to the assumption that humans did not consume the arsenic with the chicken meat. However, it has now come to light that the arsenic does not leave the chickens’ meat, so it is indeed consumed by humans.

As you know, arsenic is a carcinogen. It has no place in anything that animals or humans consume. Alpharma LLC has announced that it only plans to take the arsenic-laden feed off of shelves in countries that force them to do so. While leaving decisions to feed poisons to consumers to governments may be standard for Alpharma LLC, it is not respected.

Mr. Read, you know that the right thing to do is to stop putting arsenic in chicken feed, and to take the arsenic-laden feed off of store shelves everywhere. I implore you to do the right thing: demand Alpharma LLC stop poisoning animals and humans.

  1. Fuck u BASTARDS ASSASSINS. Go vegan !

  2. With all the garbage and toxic crap in meat today, just stop eating it, it’s not that hard.

  3. WiZaRd Of The Wolf Nation says:

    The meat industry can kiss my a$$!!!

    • kath alderwick says:

      it,s disgusting u should be able to have chicken meat pork of your choice and not have any concerns whats in it I would not have thought to look at chicken feed but I will now there forcing the public to go vegan or vegetarian

    I believe the meat industry is one of the most evil in the world. The money involved in this cruel business is the guiding force for the CEOS of these bloody businesses.
    I will never believe that millions of animals have to be slaughtered every day for several reasons:
    1.The vegan and vegetarian community are growing.
    2.There are religious groups who abstain from pork.
    3.Millions with health issues who are limited in their
    saturated fat intake.
    4.Many people eat meat only twice a week.
    5.People living below the poverty level may not eat
    Several weeks ago I read that 8 million pounds of beef
    was recalled because it was not inspected and was sup-
    osedly tainted. How many beef cows were slaughtered
    needlessly? There are millions of people eating less
    meat, but these slaughterhouses are killing all live-
    stock at an accelerated rate of speed. Pathetic!!!

  5. Pay a bit more and go for FREE RANGE chickens or eggs. Your body and health worth much more than all those craps they put in mass production. You cannot even trust FDA. Its better to stop promoting business that has no mercy for the welfare of animals. Chickens live in cramp space, some places has cage stacked on top of each other. Why would anyone want to eat miserable chickens and eggs or their by products.

    • kath alderwick says:

      even if u buy free range chicken in this case how do u know if the chicken feed is safe meaning they need to supplement there food AS WELL

  6. I am vegetarian so I don’t eat chicken meat but STOP selling poison chicken meat. Leave the animals alone please.

  7. …arsenic is a deadly poison, its frightening to think of it anywhere near food/animals that are sadly to be slaughtered for food….but yes I agree with with the comment we should boycott the meat industry once and for all! Its a cruel and evil trade…animals are treated like meat while they are still alive, in a cruel and barbaric way…thrown around, kicked, beaten and kept in tiny crates and boxes… they should be treated with the kindness and respect they deserve, so they don’t have to live in this terrible fear they must experience…the slaughter should be quick and painless..many aren’t stunned properly before the slaughter…a known fact!The human race are MEANT to be the more intelligent, then we should act that way/ think of all these things, and stop treating other living creatures in this disgusting way!

  8. Martin Nikolov says:

    I’m actually happy that meat-eaters are getting poisoned. If you eat someone’s corpse, you don’t really deserve to be healthy. My honest opinion.

  9. I would not vote for this one. My advise is to eat no chicken at all. It is vile to eat any animal. Why won’t slaughter houses allow us to witness the going on’s? Unlike a greenhouse with windows for all to see the beautiful veggies that are grown there. I dare them to use glass windows.
