Exposure to Chicken Abuse Images Has More Impact Than That of Cows on Targeted Meat Consumption Among a Sample of Japanese Consumers

This research examines denial and meat preferences among Japanese consumers exposed to disturbing images of animal abuse on factory farms. Findings suggest that consumers react differently to targeted animal products (chicken versus beef) and may even increase consumption of targeted meat after viewing these images.
