Buyers and Central Valley Meat Co. Sever Ties

After the controversial closing of Central Valley Meat Co., previous buyers of the meat production company are halting their purchases.

Buyers of Central Valley Meat Co. products, including In-N-Out Burger, McDonald’s Corporation, Costco, and the federal government, are ending business with the California slaughterhouse after an undercover investigation conducted by Compassion Over Killing revealed extremely inhumane animal handling. In 2011, the US Department of Agriculture purchased 21 million pounds of beef from the meat-production facility, which was sent to schools, Native American reservations, and community food banks. After the breaking news earlier this week regarding the undercover footage, institutions nationwide, including the American Meat Institute and the National Cattlemen’s Beef Association have been voicing discontent, referring to the actions of Central Valley employees as disgraceful and abusive.
