Two New Suits Allege Health Problems From Chicken Litter

OKLAHOMA - Two new lawsuits have been filed alleging that the spreading of chicken litter in the Prairie Grove area causes cancer and other health problems.

Many of the 15 new plaintiffs represent deceased relatives or children.

The suits, filed in Washington County Circuit Court, track earlier lawsuits and name the same poultry producers and suppliers of feed additives.

The suits in Washington County Circuit Court claim poultry companies use chicken feed with high levels of arsenic, copper and zinc as well as fungi and mold spores.
