Kosher Meat under Scrutiny

Kosher meat has come under the public’s eye since the majority of Israel’s beef, and a large portion of America’s kosher meat, comes from South America where slaughterplants that produce kosher meat use the “shackle and hoist” method: lifting them off of the ground by one hind leg prior to slitting their throat, as is required by Israel’s chief rabbis, the final authorities on kosher meat entering the Jewish state.

Last year People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA) obtained footage of kosher slaughter in Uruguay (http://tinyurl.com/2oe2hx)  shows animals struggling in the air and bellowing, and once on the ground they are shown writhing and being restrained by multiple workers who step on them and prod them before the cut.
