Chimicles Schwartz Kriner & Donaldson-Smith LLP (CSK&D) is investigating a potential class action lawsuit related to alleged false advertising of Sanderson Farms chicken products as being 100% natural. Sanderson Farms touts their chicken as being “100% natural” and free of any antibiotics. Contrary to the company’s promotional statements and advertising, government testing has uncovered numerous instances of antibiotics in the company’s chicken products. Further, one of these antibiotics, chloramphenicol, is prohibited from being administered to food-producing animals, and a 2016 U.S. Department of Health and Human Services report identified this antibiotic as a human carcinogen. Similar tests have also revealed that Sanderson Farms “100% natural” chicken allegedly contain pesticides and prescription drugs.
