A group of Washington-area religious and political leaders focused their attention June 19 on a Smithfield Meats pork processing plant in Tar Heel-the world’s largest such facility-to urge a boycott of Smithfield meat products until the company stops what they said is unfair treatment of its workers.

    I saw this video on youtube called the faces of Smithfield. A woman went into labor on the kill floor and later miscarried. Smithfield fired her because she didn’t call in sick!

    I’m not buying their pork.

    I will not be buying any Smithfield products AT ALL until they stop treating their workers like they do. It’s terrible! OMG. Smithfield needs to treat their employees like PEOPLE!

    I have heard too many stories about the injustices of Smithfield! I will no longer purchase any of their products!!!
