Prepare: In preparation for your first post in this discussion you will become familiar with the case of Perdue Farms by means of the material listed under Required Resources (Generally). You will also find more material under Required Resources (Per Subject Heading) because the specific task for this discussion is to examine this case with an eye for any one of the following four subject headings in business ethics: (1) the environment (2) advertising (3) consumer safety and (4) moral responsibility. You must select one of these subject headings and your selection will be the specific focus of your work for your discussion. Accordingly you will be responsible to complete the readings and videos listed under your chosen subject heading.
Reflect: If you choose the environment subject heading reflect on the sheer density of chickens raised at any given time in the Perdue facilities. The disposal of their discarded remains and their processing for distribution either individually and most definitely together pose a number of environmental concerns.
If you choose the advertising subject heading reflect on how the two videos on Perdue farms present the sharp contrast between the way the company presents its product and the way in which it has been discovered to run its chicken farms. Consider whether this is an example of failure to provide truth in advertising and how you would support such a stance.
If you choose the consumer safety subject heading reflect on the way in which chickens raised in factory farms risks consumer safety. These might include (a) bacterial contamination (b) the effects of antibiotics on the meat that is consumed or (c) the release of adrenaline cortisone and other chemicals resulting from the acute stress endured by factory farm animals which then becomes part of the meat that is later consumed by humans.
If you choose the moral responsibility heading reflect on the stewardship role that may fall upon humans toward non-human animals. Can we utilize them as mere means to an end (for entertainment companionship or food)? Or do we have special obligations toward them (e.g. not to mistreat or torture them and to slaughter them quickly and without stress) because they are sentient beings?
Once you have completed the indicated readings and videos reflect on the ethical theories that we have covered in the discussions thus far and identify one that you want to apply for your analysis in your discussion post.
Also reflect on the regulations (or lack thereof) in the factory farming industry in order to be able to examine how our nations laws affect the operations of the business. You will need to research the applicable laws on the factory farming industry.
Finally since Perdue Farms is an American corporation reflect on the mixed economic system in the United States in order to articulate the setting for the operations of factory farming and then be able to analyze the ethical actions of Perdue given this setting.
Write: In the first part of your initial post you will need to introduce the Perdue case within the particular subject heading that you have chosen. In this introduction you will also need to (1) articulate the relevant characteristics of our mixed economic system and (2) present the regulations for the factory farming industry. These will provide the setting for you to be able to examine how the nations laws affect its operations.
In the second part of your initial post present your analysis of the problem in a way that identifies which entities (Perdue as a corporation the economic system in the USA the regulatory control of the state or all of these) have a role in the problem that you have presented. In your analysis you must assess the negative effects of the interplay between business activity and one of the following: the environment advertising consumer safety or corporate social responsibility. Your focus must be an ethical analysis of this interplay and it must be well supported by reliable and/or scholarly sources by clearly identifying the ethical theory that you are applying in your analysis.
Your initial post should be at least 400 words in length and have citations and references in APA notation. It should address the prompt in its entirety. This means that you should not split your response to the prompt in multiple posts. Your examination should be both thorough and succinct. This is a combination that demands time and thought so give yourself sufficient time to draft and revise.
