​World's Largest Meat Company Mired In Multiple Corruption Scandals

It’s been a rough few months for the world’s largest meat company. Brazil-based J-B-S is known for rapidly expanding across the globe. Its U.S. headquarters are in Greeley, Colorado. The company is so large, if you eat meat, there’s a good chance you’ve eaten their chicken, beef or pork. But as Harvest Public Media’s Luke Runyon reports, a series of scandals has hit the meatpacking giant.
