Spam and How It Gets That Way

Mother Jones has a pretty awful article about the inner workings at the Spam factory in Austin, Minnesota. It’s awful both in what you learn about how Spam gets that way, but also for how little Hormel cares about the undocumented workers who get sick making it. Of course, being undocumented, they don’t count for much.

My vegan friends & family say, “What did you expect?” But I sincerely hope that the farms that breed my grass-fed beef and “natural” pork, and Chipotle’s pork “with integrity,” are better than this.
