Stronger laws for slaughterhouses proposed
An article from MSNBC describes a bill introduced by
Senator Dianne Feinstein that would strengthen penalties for meat packing plants that send sick animals to slaughter.
The proposed legislation would fine a plant based on a percentage of its sales after the first violation and suspend USDA inspection for one year after the second violation, which would effectively shut the plant down because the inspections are required. On the third violation the plant would be shut down.
