Gov't Sues Calif. Slaughterhouse for Abuse that Led to Beef Recall

Posted: Updated:
The United States government is suing a slaughterhouse in Southern California for abusing cattle, which led to last year's massive beef recall.

The Department of Justice has joined the Humane Society of the United States' lawsuit against Chino-based Westland-Hallmark Meat Company.

The suit claims the company defrauded the government by abusing cows used for the national school lunch program.

The slaughterhouse has since been closed.

The lawsuit is seeking to recover about $150 million in taxpayer money.
