BAKERSFIELD, Calif. - A California plant processed diseased cows for consumption in the U.S.
Federal officials believe plant workers hid signs that alerted manufacturers the cows were sick, by trimming diseased parts, using a fake stamp of approval, and even replacing the ads of sick cows with healthy ones.
CNN is also reporting that the government's food safety inspector was having a romantic relationship with the plant foreman, which is against USDA rules for inspectors.
The U.S. Attorney's Office is now looking into those claims.
