A report by Oxfam America claims that poultry workers are working under harsh conditions where they are denied bathroom breaks by their supervisors. As a result some workers are forced to wear diapers to work. The report states that some workers relieve themselves while at their work stations. It also state that some workers restrict their intake of fluid to levels that may be unhealthy in order to avoid taking bathroom breaks and risk getting punished or risk their job security.

The companies named in the report are Tyson Foods Inc., Perdue Farms Inc., Pilgrim’s Pride Corp., and Sanderson Farms Inc. The companies with the exception of Sanderson Farms Inc have dismissed the notion that this report is true. Sanderson Farms had no comment.
