Tell Whole Foods to Drop Diestel Turkey!

When you pay more for a turkey product that meets Whole Foods’ (WFM) 5-Step Animal Welfare Rating standard, you don't expect that turkey to contain antibiotics or other drug residues. You also don't expect that the turkeys behind that label endured “horrific conditions” in their short lives.

The U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) tested Diestel turkey samples and reported finding numerous antibiotics and other drug residues. One of those drugs, Chloramphenicol, is strictly prohibited by the US Food & Drug Administration (FDA) in food production because it’s known to have “severe toxic effects in humans including bone marrow suppression or aplastic anemia in susceptible individuals.” 

TAKE ACTION: Tell Whole Foods that consumers expect better! Please drop Diestel turkey products unless Diestel starts living up to its animal welfare claims.

After you click on the alert to send the message to WFM, please call Whole Foods and ask them to drop Diestel Turkey products.

Then click to tweet WFM and post on Whole Foods and Diestel Turkey Facebook pages.Read more
