USDA concerned over mistreatment of cows at slaughterhouse and supply of their meet

The United States Department of Agriculture (USDA) learned that sick dairy cows were mistreated at a California slaughterhouse. The Department is going to launch investigation into violation of state and federal laws that ensure food safety and prevent animal cruelty.

The question appeared after the video featuring workers at the Hallmark Meat Packing Co. kicking, jabbing and applying electrical shock to cows.

In spite of alleged violations and mistreatment there is no health and supply risk. But still it’s very controversial, as Hallmark is a major supplier to a USDA program implying distribution of beef to needy families, the elderly and to schools through the National School Lunch Program.

The authorities of the facility suspended the work and fired the workers seen on the tape. They are planning to meet with the stuff and try to improve the situation and supervision. At the same time the Humane Society is concerned about the supplied and already consumed meet, as it may contain dangerous pathogens.
