CHICAGO (WBBM NEWSRADIO) -- More than 30 protesters rallied outside Fairlife's Chicago headquarters Monday, as consumer-fraud lawsuits were filed against the dairy company.

The demonstration, organized under the organization Free From Harm, stems from a video released by Animal Recovery Mission on June 5. It showed animals being abused at a Fair Oaks, Ind. Dairy farm affiliated with Fairlife.

Fair Oaks Founder Mike McCloskey has said any employees who mistreated animals have been fired.

"This is the corporate playbook -- to fire a few low-level workers, using them as scapegoats without really addressing the real problem" says Free From Harm founder Robert Grillo. "
