Mercy For Animals reports on corrupt egg industry
From the post
A federal grand jury probe has uncovered documents showing a major egg producer knew that eggs from his factory farms were contaminated with deadly bacteriamonths prior to the salmonella outbreak that sickened 62,000 Americans. Not surprisingly, Austin “Jack” DeCoster, the egg tycoon linked to the outbreak, has a long history of endangering public health and abusing animals. His 30-year criminal rap sheet also includes charges of indenturing migrant workers and exploiting young children, and he has been deemed a “habitual violator” of state environmental laws.
This just goes to show you that the issues in factory farming run deep. The horrifying abuse of animals is one aspect of it, but none are free while others are oppressed.
