Meat recalls mired in secrecy

The recent record recall of 143 million pounds of raw and frozen beef from a California slaughterhouse was pretty chilling.
The recall was triggered by undercover video taken by the Humane Society of cows too sick to stand being dragged and prodded across the slaughtering floor.
But here’s something else that might disturb you: If you wanted to find out whether your neighborhood grocery sold any of that meat, forget it. It’s classified.
