Update - NAACP joins PETA against KFC 

This just in from PETA:

Mr. Kweisi Mfume, President and CEO of
the NAACP just sent a letter to KFC CEO
David Novak, asking that the company
adopt animal-welfare improvements
recommended by PETA and eliminate
practices such as allowing chickens to be
scalded to death in defeathering tanks and
breeding and drugging birds so that their
leg bones splinter under their own breast
weight.

Mr. Mfume’s letter comes on the heels
of recent open letters from hip-hop
mogul Russell Simmons and Sir Paul
McCartney calling on the company to
make improvements in animal welfare.
