The incredible video footage was aired by NBC News, exposing abusive treatment by farm employees; video taken by the undercover activist posing as farm help in Wisconsin.

The DiGiorno cheese – formerly contracted from a cheese supplier in Appleton, Wis. – were made with the milk supplied by the Wiese Brothers Farm located in Greenleaf, Wis.

Due to its cruel animal abuse methods by employees hired by the Wisconsin – based dairy farm, viewers were warned prior to viewing NBC’s exclusive footage.

The Nestle Company brand covers cookie, cocoa, coffee powder creamers and a variety of Gerber baby products to the consumer public.

Deborah Cross, spokesperson for Nestle, according to NBC News said, “Nestle is outraged and deeply saddened by the mistreatment of animals show in this video.”

Upon learning their cheese were produced from milk that did not protect the animal welfare of the cows, the Wiese Brothers Farm mirrored the same response; they will cooperate with the Brown County Sheriff’s Department in their ongoing investigation based on the Mercy for Animal’s cruelty video footage of the farm cows.

Do you think there should be more activists like this to help the consumer public in their decision before purchasing food products?
