TLC Chickens Visit Nation’s Capital


Washington, DC – Several six-foot-tall chickens will be walking the streets of the Nation’s Capital next week on September 25th and September 26th to pass out information at Metro stops around the city, including Union Station, Capitol South, and the Smithsonian, among others. The chickens, members of the TLC in costume, are helping to raise awareness of fraudulent labeling practices within the poultry industry.

“The next time a consumer is at the grocery store, he or she should remember meeting the TLC Chicken and think about whether the fresh chicken they are buying for their family is truly natural. Anyone concerned about what they eat should help by contacting their Member of Congress and urge that they support truthful natural labeling,” said Bill Mattos, President of the California Poultry Federation.

By urging immediate reform of the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s poultry labeling rules, the TLC is hoping to prevent fresh chicken that is pumped-up or injected with sodium, water, carageenan (a seaweed extract), and other additives, from being labeled as “Natural.”

For more information on the event please contact Hilary Riedemann at the number or email listed below.

The TLC Tip Sheet is designed to inform, educate, and inspire people to get involved with the truthful labeling cause.

Regular updates will be forthcoming. Interviews, photographs and B-Roll are available by contacting Hilary Koehl Riedemann at or at 202.448.0196.
