Federal inspectors have temporarily shut down a California meat company that provided beef for the popular In-N-Out Burger chain and the U.S. school lunch program, saying there was evidence of “egregious, inhumane handling and treatment of livestock.”

The federal action came Monday after inspectors viewed an undercover video made at the Central Valley Meat Company in Hanford, California over two weeks last month by an investigator for the animal rights group, Compassion Over Killing.

The tape shows workers using electric prods on cattle that can barely walk and the group alleged that the company used potentially diseased “downer cows” and treated them in an inhumane manner.
