Video Notebook: A Day at the Plant


NOW's Senior Correspondent Maria Hinojosa takes us inside the world's largest pork processing plant, located in Tar Heel, North Carolina. As the first TV journalist ever allowed to film inside the plant, owned by The Smithfield Packing Company, Hinojosa gives us an insider's view of what conditions are like in a plant that slaughters over 33,000 hogs per day.
