Cameras in Slaughterhouse

The Food Standards Agency in Great Britain intends to set-up a detailed plan in order to have cameras in every one of the 400 slaughterhouses in the region. Tim Smith, chief executive of this agency said, “Where we find resistance it is from operators with something to hide”.

It is not surprising that operators of slaughterhouses don't want cameras around because they know that animal abuse is widespread and that food safety is also compromised.
