Largest Beef Recall in US History

Hallmark/Westland Meat Packing Co. voluntarily recalled all of its beef produced since Feb. 1, 2006 (143 million lbs.) after The Humane Society of the United States (HSUS) released videotapes on Jan. 30 showing workers at the plant using several abusive techniques, including ramming cattle with forklift blades and using a hose to simulate the feeling of drowning, in order to make "downer" cows stand up and pass a pre-slaughter inspection.

The extent of cruelty inflicted on these cows is unimaginable for most of us, and clearly shows the callousness of the meat industry in order to squeeze as much profit as possible from God's animals who are treated as mere commodities. This kind of exploitation will not reach an end until compassionate consumers refuse to support the meat industry. Adopting a plant-based diet certainly is the most effective way to take a stand for God's animals raised for food.
