Tenn. residents file suit against odorous chicken farm

There are 65 people in the lawsuit.

A class-action lawsuit by homeowners in Morrison, Tenn., has been filed against seven defendants, including Tyson, according to reports. The residents are angered about the odor emitted from the chicken facility that houses 400,000 birds.

The suit contends the plant generates “noxious gases, smoke, dust, fumes and odors” that nauseate neighbors and force them to stay indoors away from the stench.

In all, 65 residents are part of the class-action lawsuit.
