There is a massive beef recall in the United States, actually the largest recall in history. 143 million pounds of beef is being recalled.
This latest undercover investigation by the Humane Society of America is not anything new. Investigations by PETA have been going undercover for years but since the news corporations and government deny PETA credibility because of ties to the ALO (Animal Liberation Organization) they don't show all of the other companies' practices that have gone on to sell sick and diseased meat and dairy to unwitting consumers.
These practices happen way too often and more than half of the meat supply in the USA is contaminated by harmful bacteria (that's why you must cook your food to kill harmful bacteria.)
Need I say more.
