Central Valley Meat Federally Approved to Re-Open

After being shut down for just one week, a California slaughterhouse charged with abusive treatment to livestock is approved to re-open.

Last week, Central Valley Meat Co. made headlines for its improper and abusive handling of livestock after animal-welfare group Compassion Over Killing released undercover footage. This week, the slaughterhouse’s suspension has been revoked, and the facility is operating again. The US Department of Agriculture claims the meat supplier has agreed to make corrections to the facility so that production of meat could continue. With the new changes in place, only employees who have been properly trained can handle cows about to go into slaughter, and all cows must be stunned in the most humane way possible. While the slaughterhouse is back in action, a number of its buyers, including In-N-Out, Costco, and the USDA, have discontinued business with the company.
