Now PETA's Chokin' the Chicken at Brinker International
And you thought Chili's had trouble before. Next time you bite into that juicy Guiltless Chicken Sandwich at Chili’s, you may want to know that, according to People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals today, you should probably feel at least a little bit guilty. A shareholder in Dallas-based Brinker International, PETA submitted a resolution that the company steer its suppliers away from its current method of killing and toward the less cruel "controlled-atmosphere killing."
Using the CAK method the hens’ oxygen is slowly replaced with nonpoisonous gasses. The chickens
suffocatego to sleep painlessly. And that’s the less cruel option. So how exactly are they killing those chickens that go into that Chicken Salsa Fresca at On the Border's? Well, according to PETA ... You know what, just read it for yourself, because it's damned near dinner time, and phrases like "birds' heads are run through electrified baths that painfully shock and paralyze them" are close to putting us off tonight's serving of yardbird. Almost, but not quite. --Daniel Rodrigue
