Animals reared for frankfurters for UK supermarkets were slammed on concrete floors and given antibiotics against WHO advice

The harrowing cruelty inflicted on pigs as reported in The Independent (News, 3 December) is soul-destroying. Despite their promises of adhering to strict animal welfare standards, supermarkets like Tesco, Sainsbury’s, Morrisons and Asda continue dealing with slaughterhouse companies that flaunt the rules with impunity. Consumers should shun meat by adopting a plant-based diet. That is the only way the suffering of animals in slaughterhouses will stop.
