Petition for Proper Pork

It’s not too late to join over 29,000 people in signing the Change.Org petition urging the Hormel plant in Fremont Nebraska to stop their unsafe inspection practices. Both the health of the workers and the safety of the meat have been put at risk by a program that speeds up inspection lines, sending 83 pounds of pork flying past inspection per second. Workers urge you to help them put a stop to contaminated meat being served to your family. To read the affidavits or sign the petition, visit
