Item Description...
Slaughterhouse is the first book of its kind to explore the impact that unprecedented changes in the meatpacking industry over the last twenty-five years -- particularly industry consolidation, increased line speeds, and deregulation -- have had on workers, animals, and consumers. It is also the first time ever that workers have spoken publicly about what's really taking place behind the closed doors of America's slaughterhouses.
In this new paperback edition, author Gail A. Eisnitz brings the story up to date since the book's original publication. She describes the ongoing efforts by the Humane Farming Association to improve conditions in the meatpacking industry, media exposes that have prompted reforms resulting in multimillion dollar appropriations by Congress to try to enforce federal inspection laws, and a favorable decision by the Supreme Court to block construction of what was slated to be one of the largest hog factory farms in the country.
Nonetheless, Eisnitz makes it clear that abuses continue and much work still needs to be done

Slaughehouse  Nov 16, 2008
Awesome documentary!! A must read for anyone who has any interest in nutrition, especially regarding animal products.
Read this book  Oct 24, 2008
This book was written over ten years ago, population then, and meat consumption was not as high as it is today. Imagine how the profiteers behind the meat market have to rush these animals through the massacre to provide for the needs of a ever hungrier and misinformed population we have now.

This book was the last drop into a series of books that made me give up eating meat entirely. No wonder they never allowed it on that 60 minutes show, but after all these years the truth is coming out, slowly but surely.

All that is told by Gail is something that will mark you. Read it, learn it, change your ways.

More inspiration  Oct 23, 2008
I've watch the PETA videos,"Meet your Meat" etc. So I'm already familiar to the horrors of the slaughterhouse industry. I haven't read the Jungle book yet, but was surprised that even this day in age the dangers of those working in the slaughterhouses. My initial intent was to read it as more inspiration for me on my Vegan journey. (I'm additicted to cheese) And daily doses of reading this book helped me awake to my new lifestyle. The information was so helpful for me when people would attack my belief system on choosing to not consume meat OR dairy. When I would mention the reality of the number of cattle that are missed, the lack of addiquite testing control, the horrid details of what e coli REALLY does to children, and the blatant niave thinking on the part of the USDA with its consumers, I was immediatly understood by my peers. I wasn't seen as a nut bag whose thinks that "pets have feelings" but someone with a sound mind who is just worried about the saftey of a meat industry that is obviously NOT being regulated appropriatly when the country thinks it is! A GROSS misconception. I'm am so very thankful for this book.
We wish we could ignore it but we can't!  Jul 27, 2008
I read this book and did not know what to expect. It has definitely changed the choices I make when it comes to food and where I buy it. It has also inspired me to eat more meatless dishes and learn more about other types of foods I probably would have never tried.
Confirming the gross-ness  Jul 3, 2008
This book just confirms the other reading I have done on the subject. Read it if you are ready to get the facts and stop ignoring what I like to refer to as the "gross-ness" of the meat and dairy industry (both in terms of the animals' treatment, and the impact for everyone and everything else). Yuck!!!
