Beef Recall Aftermath

In a Robert Irvine-esque fall from grace, the California beef facility that got busted by a hidden camera video that made the internet rounds some weeks ago is now on the verge of collapse: "Hallmark/Westland Meat Packing Co., one of the biggest suppliers of beef to the national school-lunch program before videos showing animal cruelty at the plant helped trigger the biggest meat recall in U.S. history, probably will shut down permanently, according to the company's general manager, Anthony Magidow ... 'I don't see any way we can reopen,' [GM Anthony] Magidow said in a telephone interview. The closely held company, which had about $100 million a year in sales, is starting to run low on cash, he said." Too late for Deathwatch? [WSJ via Cutty]
