HSUS Smithfield Investigation

HSUS releases findings from an undercover investigation at a Smithfield Foods factory farm.

The Humane Society of the United States (HSUS) has released video footage from an investigation at a Virginia factory farm owned by the world’s largest producers of pork, Smithfield Foods. The video contains animal abuses such as pigs crammed into small gestation crates, no veterinarian onsite, physical abuse to the pigs conducted by employees, and pigs being thrown into dumpsters alive. This footage comes within a month of HSUS conducting similar investigations at the country’s largest egg producer, Cal-Maine Foods, and at Willmar Poultry, the largest turkey hatchery in the US.
