The Central Valley Meat Company, a California meat supplier, is back in business after reports arose last week of inhuman actions towards cows used for slaughter.

We reported last week that In-N-Out severed ties with the slaughter company due to animal cruelty allegations and an undercover video that showed “pre-slaughter cows bleeding and thrashing after failed attempts to render them unconscious using a pneumatic gun.” Other accusations included cows struggling to walk or stand, along with the animals being shocked, shot and pulled to slaughter stations.

Well, now the meat supplier is reopened, after agreeing to change how it handles animals.

“The company has committed to a number of corrective actions including additional humane handling training for employees and safeguards to ensure that only ambulatory animals are processed,” an agency spokesman said in an email.

Though reopened, providing meat to federal food programs is still not allowed. Furthermore, Central Valley Meat Company is also under investigation for alleged food safety violations.

“We have worked closely with both inspectors and industry experts while developing our USDA-approved action plan,” the company revealed. “As a result, Central Valley Meat will provide better training for our workers, better monitoring of our facilities and more frequent third-party audits of our operations.”

If you’re mourning Sudan the rhino, go vegan

The world needs more vegans because more than dollars or pledges or sad-emoji riddled posts, our individual efforts can stop the demand for horns, for zoos, for animal flesh, and for the exploitation of any living being.

Criticize veganism, but don’t discredit it

Oppressive and harmful behaviour has no place in a movement rooted in anti-oppression.
