Study Alleges Tyson Dumped Over 370 Million Pounds Of Pollutants Into America’s Waterways

By Jacob M. Thompson

Tyson Foods, the United States’ largest meat and poultry producer, has purportedly dumped hundreds of millions of pounds of toxic chemicals and heavy metals into U.S. waterways, according to a new study by a group of scientists critical of the food monopoly’s actions.

The detailed analysis was conducted by the Union of Concerned Scientists, providing evidence that Tyson dumped more than 370 million pounds of pollutants into waterways between 2018-2022. However, the group notes that these numbers are just estimates based on publicly available data, so the data is very conversative at best.

The group wrote in their report:

Between 2018 and 2022, Tyson processed billions of animals, generating enormous quantities of wastewater—according to the US Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), over 87 billion gallons (Tyson Foods n.d.; US EPA n.d.). That is enough to fill more than 177,000 Olympic swimming pools (City of Corvallis, Oregon n.d.). In a single year, 2022, Tyson discharged over 18.5 billion gallons of wastewater. This wastewater contains millions of pounds of toxic pollutants that damage the environment and threaten the health of plants, animals, and people (Burkhart et al. 2018).
