After videos of bovine abuse surfaced around the interwebs and local blogs, the oddly-named SoCal meat plant has been shuttered: "The USDA announced this week that it was shutting down operations at a Chino-based meat producer, after hidden camera video showed workers there using various inhumane methods to force 'downer' -- or non-ambulatory -- cattle to their feet and into the slaughter box. Now, in the wake of the video's release and the agency's response, food industry insiders are questioning just how reliable the USDA's inspection process is. The incidents recorded at Hallmark Meat Packing occurred under the noses of eight on-site USDA inspectors." [OG, LAT]
