NPPC Responds to Latest HSUS Video
The National Pork Producers Council says the practices shown in the undercover video released by the Humane Society of the United States are abhorrent to U.S. pork producers. The group condemns such actions - noting they are not in accord with the industry's best practices that are exemplified in the Pork Quality Assurance Plus program. NPPC says providing humane and compassionate care for pigs at every stage of life is one of the ethical principles to which U.S. pork producers adhere. The group further states that U.S. pork producers are committed to caring for animals in a way that protects their well-being. NPPC does not defend and will not accept mistreatment of animals. NPPC understands the farm in question is taking immediate steps to address the situation. According to the group - the individuals responsible for willful abuse of animals must be held accountable.
