Whistleblower Profile

Rudy Howell

Long-time Perdue poultry farmer has alleged he was wrongfully discharged for raising concerns about Perdue’s practices. Read his full complaint here. Rudy originally reached out to GAP’s Food Integrity Campaign because he was sick of watching the big chicken companies deceptively trap farmers like him into a business that makes it near impossible to stay afloat, and then punish farmers if they don’t do exactly what they’re told. Like Craig Watts before him, Rudy took a big risk to stand up against industry practices that disempower truth-telling farmers. Unfortunately, Rudy was terminated for speaking out. He is now being represented by the Government Accountability Project’s Food Integrity Campaign.
