Target: Sean Connolly, CEO of ConAgra Foods
Goal: Demand ConAgra Foods stop alleged unfair treatment of workers, unsafe production practices, and excessive environmental pollution.
According to consumer reports and studies, ConAgra foods is committing many crimes against the environment and our health. The corporation owns one of the top factories responsible for pollution, releasing chemicals and substances into the air and water that are contributing to climate change and global warning. It uses potentially environmentally-harmful genetically modified ingredients in its food. Its food is prone to becoming contaminated, leading to disease outbreaks and recalls, including a massive recall of pot pies after they were linked to a salmonella outbreak in 2007. Its factories show little regard for worker safety, and its treatment of workers is reported to be discriminatory and unfair.
ConAgra is home to many popular food brands and products, such as Chef Boyardee ready-to-eat pasta, Jiffy Pop popcorn and Swiss Miss hot chocolate mix. It is among one of the largest food giants in North America, and its products are heavily advertised household names. However, none of this means much when it comes to the well-being of consumers and the environment. These products pose many potential dangers to the health of consumers, in both their ingredients and packaging.
This company needs to start changing its policies for the better. We must demand it puts more thought and effort into keeping food products safe for human consumption, and that factories take better care of the workers and switch to safer, more eco-friendly methods of production that will not harm the environment. Sign this petition to demand ConAgra Foods clean up its act immediately.
Dear Mr. Connolly,
Your company is harming the environment and putting consumers in danger. Studies have shown that your food products use dangerous genetically modified ingredients and that your packaging has some of the highest BPA levels in the country. Your factories are unsafe and produce chemicals and toxins that contaminate the air and water supply, in addition to practicing unfair discrimination when it comes to the treatment of your workers. It is time to start exercising more caution and care when it comes to the production of your brands. Use more eco-friendly packaging and production methods at your factories, and ensure that the ingredients in your food products are safe for human consumption, to avoid any future outbreaks of disease or the need for product recalls due to contaminated food. Your company is responsible for bringing us many of our cherished brand names, and we should be able to buy and consume them without worry or guilt.
[Your Name Here]
