NBC News Retracts Spurious Report on Underage Slaughterhouse Workers

NBC recently carried a report that a 16-year-old boy named Pedro works at the slaughterhouse. The report claimed that Pedro is responsible for hauling away animal parts in a cart, scrubbing blood off the floor and cleaning machines with harsh chemicals and that his work hours are 11 p.m. to 6 a.m.

"Although the job is hard, dangerous and tiring, he fears losing his paycheck would put him and his family in Guatemala in an impossible situation. Pedro said he used a false identity to get the job," said the report.

Days after the reports aired, PSSI sent NBC News a videotaped interview the company conducted with Pedro in which he said he is not a minor.

NBC News also asked Pedro to reconfirm his age, and he said it was “hard for me to explain.” NBC News and Noticias Telemundo then traveled to Guatemala and obtained official documentation showing he is 21.

The report turned out to be a complete falsehood.
