Meat factories in the US are notorious for inhumane treatmeat of animals and the Russian inspectors saw this.

In tightly packed cages from birth, no sunlight, fecal matter as flooring, antibiotics pumped into them to keep them healthy instead of good food - it all comes back to those who eat the meat. And we wonder why our stomachs often hurt afterwards or why there's recalls. More transparency in how our food is produced in this country can only be good not just for humans but for the animals we consume also.
