Apparently it's not just happy cows that come from California.The Times reported earlier today that the state Department of Public Health has released a list of Southern California food retailers linked to the Chino-based slaughterhouse responsible for the largest beef recall in United States history.
The USDA ordered the recall of 143 million pounds of beef Sunday after the Humane Society released a video of workers at the Westland/Hallmark Meat Co. shoving sick and/or crippled cows with forklifts, shocking them with electric prods, dragging them with chains and shooting water up their poor little cow noses.
While no illnesses have been linked to the recalled beef, it may still be nice to know if that steak you ate two weeks ago came from the Chino plant or if it came from a happier slaughterhouse on another side of the dead animal rainbow.
