U.S.D.A. Makes Nationís Largest Beef Recall

Anyone still think the USDA "inspection" program actually means anything? This was a Federally inspected plant, supplying meat for school lunches, no less, literally shoving sick and downer cattle into the food supply. And it took a Humane Society clandestine video alleging animal abuse to bring the situation to light.

Makes me damn glad we eat our own beef.

The U.S. Department of Agriculture on Sunday recalled 143 million pounds of frozen beef from a Southern California slaughterhouse that is being investigated for mistreating cattle.
