Undercover Video Documents Abuse at In-N-Out Cheese Supplier

A new video from the group Mercy For Animals features hidden-camera footage of dairy cows being abused by workers at a major cheese supplier in Idaho. Criminal charges have been filed against two workers and one manager in connection to the incidents caught on video. Animal rights groups are holding news conferences nationwide, calling on companies that rely on Bettencourt Dairies, including Kraft, Burger King, and Wendy's to sever ties with the cheese supplier. Mercy For Animals met with the press in downtown Los Angeles to call on In-N-Out to sever ties with Bettencourt. The Southern California-based fast food chain acted quickly in August to stop business with a Central Valley Slaughterhouse after a video documenting abusive conditions surfaced. Pacifica's Dan Fritz files this report from Los Angeles.
