Two Beef Processors Hit With Humane Violations

Looks like someone forgot to contribute to the Bush Library.

Two of the nation's largest beef processors were slapped with humane handling violations during a government review of meat providers to the National School Lunch Program, records show.

One of those companies' violations was rescinded after the company appealed, and the other company's appeal is pending.

Audits by the Agriculture Department's Food Safety and Inspection Service resulted in "noncompliance" determinations for a National Beef Packing Co. plant in Dodge City, Kan., and a Cargill Meat Solutions plant in Fresno, Calif., according to information obtained by The Associated Press under a Freedom of Information Act request.
