Foster Farms� Bully Tactics Backfire


Foster Farms� Bully Tactics Backfire, �Foster Facts� Ads Return to Television this Week

------------------------------------------------------------

On Friday, February 16th, EBAA�s �Foster Facts� television advertisements return to the Food Network and Animal Planet.

In mid-December 2006, EBAA kicked off a new television advertising campaign, exposing over 62,000 households in the City of Berkeley and Marin County to the cruel realities at Foster Farms (www.FosterFacts.net). The ad campaign generated positive feedback from many concerned viewers. On December 21st, however, Foster Farms sent Comcast a threatening letter, accusing the media company of illegally airing the commercials.

After nearly two months of deliberation, Comcast agreed this week to air additional television advertisements (watch the commercial online at http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pl-bypjGcPI) . Comcast�s decision to broadcast honest information about Foster Farms� actual practices is positive news for animals, consumers, and free speech protections alike.

EBAA�s television campaign will air on the Food Network and Animal Planet in the San Francisco Bay Area through June 2007.
