Tell Pilgrim's Pride to clean up its act
Dear Pilgrim's Pride CEO William Lovette,
Americans should be able to fish in our rivers and streams, swim in our lakes, and drink safe water from our taps. All too often, though, pollution from corporate agribusinesses enters our waterways, contributing to algal blooms, dead zones and more. More than 37.6 million pounds of toxic pollution generated by facilities owned by Pilgrim's Pride and its parent company, JBS, entered our waterways from 2010 to 2014 alone. I urge you to commit Pilgrim's Pride to reducing its water pollution at its facilities, suppliers and contractors across the U.S.
