Animals’ Angels investigators returned to the Sara Lee plant in Storm Lake, Iowa. During a previous visit, Animals’ Angels documented turkeys being exposed to the cold for hours and recommended several changes to be made.
During our return visit investigators were pleased to find that their recommendations were followed. All the trucks that arrived at the plant had the cages covered with insulated panels to protect the turkeys from the snow, ice and freezing weather in Iowa. In addition, the trailers pulled into an enclosed building while waiting to be off loaded.
