Putting Glass Walls on Pennsylvania Slaughterhouses So We Can See Behind Closed Doors from FAUN Friends Of Animals United
Leidy’s Inc.

Address: 266 Cherry Lane, Souderton, PA 18964
Establishment No.: m09520

USDA Inspection Report: 16 Nov 2011

Code: 04C02
Violation: 313.2

Citation: At approximately 08:30 hours, while conducting ante mortem inspection, I observed a plant employee spray pigs with one of the yellow water hoses. These pigs were recently unloaded from the truck and located in weighing scale pen. When the plant employee tried to drive the animals from the scale to the alleyway, many of them were reluctant to move. The employee’s current driving aid was ineffective. He then used the yellow, small nozzle, cleaning hose and sprayed water on the pigs in an effort to drive them into the alleyway. Barn Supervisor, [redacted] was notified that this humane handling noncompliance and that an NR would be documented. This establishment failed to comply with federal regulatory requirement 9 CFR 313.2.

Regulation:

313.2(a) Driving of livestock from the unloading ramps to the holding pens and from the holding pens to the stunning area shall be done with a minimum of excitement and discomfort to the animals. Livestock shall not be forced to move faster than a normal walking speed.
