Stop Company From Sawing Through Live Lambs’ Throats

Target: Dr. Yudhbir Sharma, District Manager of Food Safety and Inspection Service (FSIS) in California

Goal: Launch full investigation into allegations of animal cruelty and violations of food labeling standards against lamb meat producer.

Animal rights group Compassion Over Killing has released horrific undercover footage showing what appears to be cruel treatment of animals at a meat plant owned by Superior Farms, the United States’ leading producer of lamb meat. Footage shows lambs having their throats brutally sawed at with a knife in repeated strokes, in direct violation of the Humane Methods of Slaughter Act. Many of these innocent animals were seen still moving and trying to breathe, even after their throats had been cut. Almost as worrisome was the revelation of potential health code violations. According to investigators, workers were documented removing “best by” and “packed on” date labels from finished products and replacing them with labels with later dates more than a dozen times, essentially lying to consumers about the freshness of their products.

The FSIS department of the USDA must do its job to ensure that Superior Farms is abiding by animal welfare and labeling standards. Demand that they launch a full investigation of Superior Farms and penalize them as necessary if found guilty of these alleged violations.

PETITION LETTER:

Dear Dr. Sharma,

A video from an undercover investigation shows workers at a California meat plant owned by Superior Farms brutally slaughtering lambs in methods that apparently violate the Humane Methods of Slaughter Act. The video also shows workers changing dates of “best by” labels on finished products, deceiving their consumers about the freshness and quality of their meat.

I ask that the FSIS launch a full investigation of Superior Farms and punish them harshly if these allegations are found to be true.

Sincerely,

[Your Name Here]

    This is absolutely cruel and inhumane beyond words. Who does this to a helpless animal? Please shut down this hell hole and arrest the workers who violated animal rights. Where are the govt inspectors at this place? This cruelty should never be allowed. We need cameras in EVERY slaughterhouse and factory farm. Show the world how their meat is mistreated!

    I thought we were living in the 21st century not in the stone age where those ppl had no choice on how they killed for food, these farms must have access to better ways to do this, it’s despicable inhumane treatment of these animals, just because this farm slaughters animals, doesn’t mean they have to show no regard towards their pain or suffering.how do these workers sleep at night knowing what they’ve done. Shut this place down and prosecute the owners and workers for inhumane treatment of these lambs.

  7. This is bad on two sides. Clearly animal cruelty in the slaughter process and
    changing the “best by” labels. Both were clear violations of existing laws.

    Lets hope the government does something for a change.

  8. This is total bullshit. Do the fucking job you were hired to do USDA! What a worthless organization; and a waste of taxpayer’s money…

  9. Please can everyone who signs this petition send an email to Superior Farms telling them just what they think of the way they are torturing these poor sheep. This is their email address:
