    I'd imagine there's some serious safety procedures and equipment in place to stop that from happening.

    The article says she was on wheeled stairs, and fell in. That's not much information to understand what actually happened.

    Cf "The Jungle" by Upton Sinclair. The meat packing industry has always been suspect.

    As an aside, consider the massive numbers of illegals Tyson Chicken uses. Massive, because every time ICE raids Tyson, Tyson is left hurting. Maybe if our government got serious about the issue; maybe if government left the illegals alone, and simply confiscated Tyson Inc and all the personal assets of the CEO, the board, etc...................

    I read the book way back in college, so my memory might be foggy, but I remember his documentation where human body parts (someone's thumb, for example) made its way into the meat for consumption with nary a word.

    Have you ever read the ingredients label for hot dogs?

    As Bismark said, you don't want to see laws and sausages get made. Frankly though I think sausage making got relatively maligned.

    Most people don’t know or don’t want to know that there are actually FDA acceptable levels of the following in food:

    Rodent feces
    Insect parts
    Hair
    And the worst is simply “unidentifiable”.

    Happy eating!

    I'm continually amazed at the crap I was subjected to as a child. Second hand smoke. Pollution so thick you literally could not see more than two blocks away in downtown Louisville, KY. Little white flakes of something floating in our tap water and the water company assuring us that it was harmless. Lead in gasoline. Bouncing around in the back seat of dad's car with no seat belts. And, an endless array of bologna (our staple) and hot dogs.

    One died when his leg got ground up here in Canton a couple years ago. Illegal working under a fake name IIRC.
    I've said it many times.... a wall will do little as long as the people who hire them go unpunished.

    At this point, I don't think we'll ever see either. President Trump may have been elected as an innovative non politician, but he's certainly not making good on his assurances to do the job.

    Maybe he was elected as a businessman, but has transformed into a politician? Maybe he wants what all first term presidents want, a second term?

    Meanwhile............
