HSUS Smithfield Investigation

The Humane Society of the United States (HSUS) has released video footage from an investigation at a Virginia factory farm owned by the world’s largest producers of pork, Smithfield Foods.

This footage comes within a month of HSUS conducting similar investigations at the country’s largest egg producer, Cal-Maine Foods, and at Willmar Poultry, the largest turkey hatchery in the US.
