Beef Recall Ė 18 February 2008
Yesterday, 143 million pounds of beef were recalled by
Westland/Hallmark Meat Packing Company, the largest recall ever in
U.S. history. About 37 million pounds of this meat went to school
lunch programs and other federal ďnutritionĒ programs.
CNNís TV news program is to be commended for having Wayne Pacelle of
HSUS on today and for showing the mistreatment of downed cattle. Itís
about time the news media started to inform the public about what goes
on behind closed doors in the animal agriculture industries, and not
only when human health is involved. The public should also be kept
informed about the horrible cruelty that goes on.
Iím glad that CNNís journalists did not try to hide the fact that
downers can carry mad cow disease (bovine spongiform encephalopathy)
which can take years to show symptoms in people who are infected.

No! I see all the beauty of God's creation and I'm joyful. At the
same time, I see all the suffering and corruption going on in the
world, and feel called to help expose and end it so that we may have true
peace and compassion.
