Salmonella and Dairy Industry Practices
I once got teased for buying Certified Humane Eggs. The person said there was nothing wrong with the way hens were treated, and eggs were just eggs.But, they aren’t. A friend of mine works on cases that prosecute farmers who violated environmental legislation, with the hope that they will also review their own practices. She has seen the farms. She is a vegan.
Today, the Washington Post highlighted some of the grotesque practices. Including a recent suit: “In June, for instance, the family agreed to pay a $34,675 fine stemming from allegations of animal cruelty against hens in its 5 million-bird Maine facility. An animal rights group used a hidden camera to document hens suffocating in garbage cans, twirled by their necks , kicked into manure pits to drown and hanging by their feet over conveyer belts.”
I recommend reading the article and start researching who you are buying your dairy from. Vote for better farming with your purchasing power. Click the here for the article:
