” Accusations of animal abuse! “

By Huff Post

Smithfield Foods, one of the country’s biggest pork producers, is no stranger to accusations of animal abuse.
Animal rights advocates have gotten ahold of videos that seemed to implicated Smithfield pig producers in animal cruelty.
But the criticism reached a fever pitch this year when the Humane Society targeted McDonald’s for using Smithfield pork
in its notorious McRib sandwiches. Since then, Smithfield reported a steep decline in profits
– and announced its plan to eliminate gestation crates by 2017.

Too little, too late?
