THE BEEF: Federal regulators who shut down a central California slaughterhouse after receiving an animal welfare video are investigating whether beef from sick cows reached the human food supply.

MEATY MATTER: The USDA said it found evidence of inhumane practices on the video, but the footage did not indicate beef from sick cattle got into the food system. the investigation is continuing.
