The speed at which animals must be slaughtered, the lack of training of

them - cut their throats - before they go into a tank of boiling water
to get rid of the bristles. Twice last week they weren't stuck properly,
and the pigs went into the tank alive, burning them.” The employee
responsible for the aberration was terminated and according to Dalehead
Foods officials, these incidents are isolated.
