Ryding-Regency meat packers, a Toronto slaughterhouse that attained notoriety a few years back due to video leaks evidencing hideous acts of animal cruelty, has recently had their license suspended following a mandated recall of their beef and veal products by the CFIA for suspected E. coli contamination.
This news was well-received by animal rights activists who had been protesting against the company’s practices for years. Activists are demanding with renewed emphasis that Ryding Regency be permanently shut down, with a petition that has amassed over 200,000 signatures.
“What we do know is that the slaughter industry is out of control, that profit trumps safety, animals are suffering egregious cruelty, and humans are at risk too”, claimed Toronto animal rights activist Jenny McQueen.
