USDA Recalls Beef From California Slaughterhouse

Today, the USDA recalled 143 million pounds of beef from the California slaughterhouse secretly investigated by HSUS. This beef recall is the largest ever in the United States.

"Officials estimate that about 37 million pounds of the recalled beef went to school programs, but they believe most of the meat probably has already been eaten."

I'm hoping this company goes out of business. Well done HSUS!

Here in CA, nasty fast food joints are putting up signs that they don't sell that slaugher houses meat. OH right, like where you get yours is any cleaner or more humane...

Yea, that's really hypocritical. Just because the slaughterhouses they use haven't been investigated (yet) doesn't mean their meat is humane.

How is raising, torturing, and killing animals for food ever humane?
