Well, more like Smithfield Farms, where the pork for the McRib is raised.
The Humane Society of the United States (HSUS) announced that it had filed an SEC complaint against Smithfield Farms over the cruel and unusual conditions in which the pigs are kept.
Last year, the HSUS got gruesome footage from a Smithfield facility of animal abuse and tried to take action, but clearly, the McRib is back.
The McRib has always stirred controversy and finds itself in the public eye quite a lot, so the HSUS is hoping that maybe now is the time to strike, while people are still listening.
We don't really understand the appeal of the McRib other than it's "limited time only" appeal. Also the fact that it contains chemicals that are also used to make gym mats springy.
Even if the McRib doesn't go away soon, let's hope the HSUS saves the piggies!
