In a horrific turn of events, information leaked out on Saturday that the USDA has approved the Valley Meat Company slaughterhouse in Roswell, NM, to kill horses in order to produce meat for human consumption; additional horse slaughterhouses in Missouri and Iowa are expected to be approved.
Under the George W. Bush administration this devastating practice was banned; the Obama administration has allowed it to return. In fact, Obama has made yet another one of his many "flip flop" empty campaign promises as he had assured the Humane Society that this ban would remain in place.
While horse meat is not supposed to able to be legally sold in the U.S., there is no law prohibiting it from being shipped to Mexico, re-labeled, and then shipped back to the U.S. for use as a meat filler.
