JBS USA Response to Undercover Video

October 10, 2019


JBS USA was recently made aware of an undercover video filmed at a sow farm in Indiana. After a comprehensive review of the undercover video and consultation with internal and external animal welfare experts, JBS USA has immediately and indefinitely banned East Fork Farms from our supply chain. While we have not directly purchased pigs from this farm, we will not accept any risk that animals from this farm could be a part of our supply chain.


We are taking immediate steps to audit our supply chain and ensure compliance with this prohibition. Animal welfare is an absolute priority for our company and our customers. The images in the video do not reflect the high standards we demand from our producer partners and we do not tolerate the mistreatment of the animals under our care or in our supply chain.
