Oklahoma Sues Tyson Foods

Oklahoma Sues Tyson Foods

 In Blog

Here’s a cool Los Angeles Times article about Oklahoma suing Tyson Foods for deliberately fouling a huge watershed:

Poultry giant Tyson Foods Inc. cared more about preserving its public image than protecting a million-acre watershed from environmental pollution, attorneys for the state of Oklahoma claimed Tuesday.

As always, Tyson offers specious arguments to defend its actions:

Oklahoma says since the companies own the birds from the time they’re hatched to when they’re collected and trucked to the processing plants, they also own the waste that comes with them. The companies say the waste is the responsibility of their contract growers.

Well, isn’t that convenient? (Thanks, Matt.) Link.
