Further atrocities revealed at Maple Leaf Foods

The CBC is reporting today that a video has been released that shows further evidence of appalling treatment of chicks at a Maple Leaf Foods processing plant. Some chicks are cooked alive, and several are pushed into a macerator while still alive.  What is particularly troubling is this line:  Using a macerator to euthanize chicks is an accepted industry practice and considered humane according to industry guidelines. The guidelines were written by a group that includes industry, researchers and government.  I can’t bear to watch the video.  I suspect this is simply the tip of the iceberg:  How much of this practice exists in other plants that is not reported?
