USDA Reopens Slaughterhouse

Claims that the abuse that caused the slaughterhouse to close in the first place has been stopped


Central Valley Meat Co., the California slaughterhouse shut down by regulators last week after undercover video footage showed apparent animal abuse, reopened Monday morning after promising to change its ways.

The U.S. Department of Agriculture said it had "concluded its evaluation of the extensive corrective action plan" submitted by the slaughterhouse to address "recent humane handling violations."
