NPPC Fires Back at Humane Society Over Campaign Waged Against Pork Producers

NPPC Fires Back at Humane Society Over Campaign Waged Against Pork Producers
The National Pork Producers Council fired back at the Humane Society of the United States in the ongoing campaign waged by HSUS against pork producers. In a news release today, the HSUS says it has filed a complaint with the Federal Trade Commission seeing "prompt FTC action to stop the NPPC from deceiving consumers through its misleading animal care representations."

The NPPC released the following statement:

NPPC has learned that the Humane Society of the United States (HSUS) has filed a complaint with the Federal Trade Commission, claiming that NPPC is "engaging in deceptive advertising related to animal well-being."

NPPC will analyze the complaint once it actually is made public and will vigorously defend against the absolutely false claims made by HSUS as set forth in a press release it issued today.

The FTC complaint is the latest attack by animal-rights activists on America's hog farmers, an assault that seems obviously in response to the U.S. pork industry's strident opposition to congressional legislation that would allow federal bureaucrats to tell farmers how to raise and care for their animals.

NPPC looks forward to the FTC quickly dismissing HSUS's complaint.

America's hog farmers are committed to providing humane and compassionate care for their pigs at every stage of life. U.S. hog farmers are the ones who ensure the well-being of their animals and who are dedicated to producing safe, affordable and healthful foods for consumers - using standards and practices that have been designed with input from veterinarians and other animal-care experts - not groups that spend well-over half of the donations they receive on soliciting more contributions and, apparently, the other portion on suing American farmers.
