Food Safety: Abused Cows Prodded into the Food Supply

In what seems to be a gruesome event captured on a secret video, downed and disabled cows are tortured as a way to get them to pass inspection so they can be slaughtered for the food supply.

According to the Humane Society, downed and disabled cows should not go into the food supply because of a greater occurence of salmonella and e.coli.

The California slaughterhouse had a multi-million dollar contract with the Department of Agriculture to provide meat products to the school lunch program, needy food programs, and the elderly.

The FDA said they are checking into the allegations.

  1. I am doing a research paper for my school on animal cruelty. Will someone e-mail me (possibly an investigator or journalist involved with animal cruelty) for an interview via e-mail. If not, please send a list of contacts who I might be able to talk with.
