Pork Producers are Worried about Image

Pork producers seek to mend battered image

Good luck! I'll be holding my breath in anticipation of the redemption of your reputation; you big porker you.
And while your hirelings are busy laying white paint all over the decrepit edifice of your business practices, why not try raising animals that are not tormented by confinement and producing some meat that is not mushy and bland? Perhaps then someone besides you will actually care that you are in danger of losing money and jobs.

It's not that their consciences bother them. It's that their image is dragging their bottom line down.

That and breeding so many pigs that nobody can make a profit from the cheap pork.

So, rev up the PR machine, pretend to "take action" with "voluntary rules" to address the image problem until the heat's off, and kill the sows so pigs can become collector's items and drive the price up.
