Center to Expose and Close Animal Factories to Hold Media Teleconference Tomorrow to Discuss Smithfield Operations, Connection to Swine Flu, Health and Enviro Impacts
Date:4/29/2009

WASHINGTON, April 29 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- The following was released today by the Center to Expose and Close Animal Factories:

WHAT: The Center to Expose and Close Animal Factories (CECAF) will hold a media teleconference to discuss the worsening health and environmental damage caused by animal "factories." Among the topics will be Smithfield Foods at the center of the swine flu outbreak in Veracruz, Mexico. Officials in Mexico are looking at "manure lagoons" and a local pig farm as a possible epicenter of this world-wide health crisis.

CECAF, the effort of two crusading lawyers who have turned 10 years of litigation into a far-reaching advocacy campaign, will offer new insight into the dangerous behavior by reckless corporations such as Smithfield which has resulted in giant animal factories where pigs produce enormous amounts of manure and other waste that poison our air and water, make people sick, and confine them to their homes or drive them out for good.

WHEN: Thursday, April 30 at 11 a.m. EDT. Toll-free call-in number is (877) 783-2009; participant access code is 396657.
