Humane Society files SEC complaint against Smithfield

An animal rights group on Wednesday filed a complaint with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission against Smithfield Foods Inc., accusing the pork company of "disseminating false or deceptive information" about its treatment of animals.

The Humane Society of the United States targeted a series of Smithfield videos, titled "Taking the Mystery out of Pork Production." The Humane Society said the videos included false statements, such as that hogs live in "ideal" condition and that "every need is met."
