Have you been in or watched america's processing plants latley? They are the cleanest in the world. Granted it is not a place I would want to have lunch but, their floors are cleaned probably more often than yours. They are video monitored 24hours a day by the USDA.
Sounds like you have been watching the wrong TV channels. A lot of the stuff you see on TV is staged to improve their ratings. If you want to see something horrible go overseas.
They are not the cleanest in America. Why would I want to escalate the discussion to include the world?
Can you explain to me what happens to a cows digestion from eating corn all day? Do I need to get vulgar to make a point?
The wrong TV channels lol. I dont watch TV. Maybe you have the wrong rose colored glasses on?
Maybe you want some facts? Straight from the USDA, read on.
"According to the USDA’s new report:
“Based on our review, we found that the national residue program is not accomplishing its mission of monitoring the food supply for harmful residues. Together, FSIS, FDA, and EPA have not established thresholds for many dangerous substances (e.g., copper or dioxin3), which has resulted in meat with these substances being distributed in commerce.
Additionally, FSIS does not attempt to recall meat, even when its tests have confirmed the excessive presence of veterinary drugs.”
March 04 2008
In the largest meat recall in U.S. history, 143 million pounds of beef have been recalled by the U .S. Department of Agriculture. The beef represents the past two years of production for California-based Westland Meat, and was recalled because the company did not prevent sick animals from entering the U.S. food supply.
Westland’s partner company, Hallmark Meat Packing, was involved in “egregious violations” of federal animal care regulations. The company did not consistently bring in federal veterinarians to examine cattle that were too weak or sick to stand on their own, and sent them to be slaughtered anyway.
Government regulations prohibit slaughtering cattle that cannot stand or walk on their own for food.
Federal officials have noted that most of the recalled beef was likely eaten long ago, and, despite the recall, likely poses little or no hazard to consumers.
About 37 million pounds of the meat went to school lunch programs and other public nutrition programs.
