Ah…the meat industry just makes me feel so safe

Here is a great one.

I’ve been reading a lot of food-related books lately: Pollan, Kingsolver, etc. and the CNN story just makes me glad that I don’t eat beef.

Best quote:

Secretary of Agriculture Ed Schafer said his department has evidence that Westland did not routinely contact its veterinarian when cattle became non-ambulatory after passing inspection, violating health regulations.

(This one makes you feel good too):

Federal officials suspended operations at Westland/Hallmark after an undercover video surfaced showing crippled and sick animals being shoved with forklifts.

Watch the video for some real fun.

And this is the company providing meat to school lunch programs and the fast food industry. Man do we really need reform in the school lunch arena.
