McRibs are Disgusting

So the pig farm where McDonald’s gets their “meat” for McRib’s is under attack. Here is an excerpt from the article:

The undercover operation’s report alleges that “Smithfield pigs were living in hellish conditions where basic needs were systematically unmet,” says James McWilliams at The Atlantic. Female pigs were crammed “into gestation crates, preventing movement for most of their lives.” These crates were allegedly “coated in blood from the mouths of pigs chewing the metal bars….”

The farm, of course, denies the allegations. I mean, they have a strong argument, “We didn’t do that.”

  1. Anyone that’s read just an excerpt from The Jungle would have an idea what goes on in this industry. It doesn’t seem like much has changed, although their may be slightly less cow shit in burger now. If I could, I’d go vegetarian, but my body doesn’t get much out of vegetables and fruits.
