Over 240 Million turkeys were raised in the US last year alone. The size of this market has led to significant changes in what makes a "turkey", with the majority of fowl bred and raised in factory farms focused on producing more mass more quickly. This infographic takes a look at the anatomy of a factory farmed bird - read for yourself and consider an organic option this year, or better yet, skip the turkey altogether.
Correction: This post was previously titled 'The Anatomy of a GMO Turkey'. The content however describes factory farmed turkeys, which are quite common in the North American market, not a GMO bird, which are not available for consumption in the US.Feel free to re-post, but please use our Embed Code Below:
