What Was Kroger’s Response?
Kroger who obtains its raw materials from these dairy farms was quick to respond by saying that they had suspended any major supply of milk from these farms for the usage in any of their products. According to the officials at Kroger, the company has always rendered its full commitment to the humane treatment of all the animals that are part of the supply chain.

Kroger also issued statements briefing that they would oversee an audit of all the farms that are put under question and also publish a summarized report of all the steps that they were taking to make sure that such incidents do not happen in the near future.
