Tyson Food Accused of Dumping Toxic Chemicals into American Rivers

Multinational food manufacturer Tyson Foods has been accused of dumping millions of pounds of toxic chemicals into lakes and rivers across the U.S.

The 370 million pounds of chemicals dumped by the food company include:

Nitrogen

Phosphorus

Chloride

Oil

Cyanide

The chemicals were reported to have to been released by the company’s 41 slaughterhouses and processing plants over the past five years.

The National Pulse reported:

According to the investigation by the Union of Concerned Scientists (UCS), the toxic chemicals were flushed from Tyson facilities during the release of wastewater. This water also was found to contain high concentrations of blood, harmful bacteria, and animal feces. Some of these waterways are used as a source of drinking water for Americans.

The multinational food manufacturer has also been criticized for hiring tens of thousands of migrant laborers in its facilities. Tyson Foods — along with many other American corporations — has used a Biden government program run by the nongovernmental organization (NGO) Tent Partnership for Refugees to employ so-called asylum seekers. Many of these individuals have likely entered the U.S. illegally.

As we reported last year, Tyson Foods announced it had invested in insect-protein supplier Protix and plans to build a partnership U.S. production facility.

“The American meatpacker said Tuesday that it agreed to buy a stake in Dongen, Netherlands-based Protix BV to help fund its expansion. The companies will also form a joint venture to build and operate a U.S. facility that will produce bug-based meal and oil, which are typically used in fish feed and dog food. Financial terms of the deal weren’t disclosed,” Bloomberg reported.

The meat giant did not disclose the size of its minority stake it has taken in Protix.

Tyson Foods said:

“The strategic investment will support the growth of the emerging insect-ingredient industry and expand the use of insect-ingredient solutions to create more efficient sustainable proteins and lipids for use in the global food system.”

“It’s a multibillion-dollar industry opportunity that has tremendous growth potential, and we see Protix as being a leader there,” Tyson CFO John Tyson said in an interview.
