Feds Revoke 2004 Award for Chino Slaughterhouse Involved in Beef Recall

They've even asked for the plaque back. Oh the humanity! I can only hope our fearless leader awards the company president a Medal of Freedom if he's not to busy fantasizing about fighting the brown people in Afghanistan.

The U.S. Department of Agriculture has revoked a "supplier of the year award" given to a Southern California slaughterhouse after inhumane treatment of cows prompted the largest beef recall in history.

A USDA spokeswoman says the government is also asking Chino-based Hallmark/Westland Meat Co., for its plaque back. The plant, which supplied one-fifth of the beef used in the federal school lunch program, won the award in the 2004-2005 school year.

Think about all those places that DON'T win those stupid plaques. Heckuva job there Georgie!
