So the USDA shut down Hallmark Meat Packing In Chino, CA after hidden video showed "torture tactics" to get downed cows to get up and join the slaughter line. The so called downers are prohibited from being used for human food as they have a greater incidence of Mad Cow disease.
This occurred despite the presence of eight USDA inspectors on site.
Money quote: "Now, in the wake of the video's release and the agency's response, food industry
insiders are questioning just how reliable the USDA's inspection process is."
