USDA Buying Meat Again From Controversial Slaughterhouse

The U.S. Department of Agriculture is buying again from a Central California that’s been at the center of an animal cruelty investigation.

A statement the issued Monday says that Central Valley Meat Co.’s improved oversight for animal welfare prompted the government to reinstate purchases for federal feeding programs.

Officials with the Food Safety and Inspection Service concluded last week that there was no evidence of sick cattle entering the food supply after an undercover video showed workers kicking and shocking downed cattle in an attempt to herd them to slaughter.

The USDA will conduct quarterly audits at the Hanford company until it successfully completes four audits in a row.
