Kansas City, MO. (May 8, 2012) – The Center for Food Integrity has created an Animal Care Review Panel to provide a balanced analysis of undercover video investigations. This process engages recognized animal care specialists to examine video and provide expert perspectives for food retailers, the pork industry and the media.
The Panel is being assembled to analyze video obtained during a hidden camera video investigation at a hog farm in Wyoming and released this morning by the Humane Society of the United States. The Panel is comprised of a veterinarian, an ethicist and an animal scientist:
• Dr. Temple Grandin, Colorado State University
• Dr. Candace Croney, Purdue University
• Dr. John Deen, University of Minnesota College of Veterinary Medicine
The Center for Food Integrity facilitates the process without involvement of national species organizations. CFI’s goal is to release the Panel’s analysis to the food industry within 48 hours.
