NCC Statement on New USDA Plans to Address Salmonella Illnesses

National Chicken Council (NCC) President Mike Brown expressed appreciation to U.S. Secretary of Agriculture Tom Vilsack for the Agricultural Marketing Services’ (AMS) program that will make a special purchase for chicken products for needy families and other worthy recipients.

“At this very difficult economic time for chicken producers due to the severe drought and impending corn shortage that will unfortunately continue well into the future, I am grateful to USDA for working promptly and effectively with NCC to have a special bonus purchase program for chicken,” Brown said.  “By providing chicken through this program, USDA will help feed many economically-stressed Americans while at the same time helping to stabilize the chicken market.  NCC looks forward to continuing to work with AMS to help ensure full success of the program.”
