Slaughterhouse Line Speeds Are Reckless, Cruel, And Dangerous: Ask Congress To Act Now!

Published: September 23, 2020 at 06:53 AM Author: PENNY EIMS

United States – The Safe Line Speeds in COVID-19 Act needs your support! The act seeks to bring an end to extreme, high speed slaughter, which is inhumane to animals, and dangerous to slaughterhouse workers, as well as the general public.

Line speeds at slaughterhouses are already dangerously fast (up to 175 birds killed per minute, and unlimited line speeds for pig slaughter), which results in horrific suffering to farmed animals. The Safe Line Speed in Covid-19 Act would end the USDA waivers with regard to line speeds, and it would also suspend current line speed waivers during the Covid-19 pandemic.

Please add your name now – profits should never take priority over safety!

When the Covid-19 pandemic hit the United States, thousands of slaughterhouse workers began to test positive for the deadly virus, and over 120 people in this industry have since died. The pandemic shined a light on the unsanitary and unsafe conditions inside of these slaughterhouses, which in turn, resulted in the creation of the Safe Line Speeds in Covid-19 Act.

If this Act passes, line speed waivers would end, and it would stop the implementation of the New Swine Slaughter Inspection System, which allows pig slaughterhouses to police their own practices. High speed pig slaughter results in horrific cruelty, and unimaginable suffering. A recent undercover video revealed the horror hidden behind slaughterhouse walls…the covert video shows pigs getting their throats slashed when they were improperly stunned, or not stunned at all before being brutally killed. The high speed slaughtering is reckless, dangerous, and cruel.

We need your support today – please add your name to the petition.
