PETA spokesperson Chrissie Hynde of The Pretenders has made a statement regarding McDonald’s announcement of new welfare standards for chickens.

“McDonald’s pledge will help reduce some horrific suffering, but millions of birds will still be scalded alive for McNuggets until the policy takes effect in 2024, and the company still raises chickens with crippled legs and deformities,” said Hynde. “Other chains have enacted much stronger protections already and have broadened their base by offering vegan options.”

Chrissie Hynde has led PETA’s “McCruelty” campaign since 1999, protesting against the chain for scalding chickens alive in defeathering tanks, a practice that the company promised this week to change.
