    Oh come on..... there's billions of animals slaughtered for food each year here in the USA. This new "directive" will do nothing and is just the product of busy work by a bunch of Washington DC bureaucrats justifying their jobs.

    (And no, I am not "pro-animal cruelty.")



    you are probably right but the fact that the USDA is even trying to do something indicates that they must feel some sort of pressure, which is a step in the right direction. It would be nice If I didn't have to pay a fortune to eat food that wasn't tortured before death.
