Why Is Food Inc. Rated PG?

Disturbing images of animals and dead carcasses are seen in meat packaging plants and on industrial farms. A cow is pushed along the ground with a forklift. Dead chickens are hauled out of a coop. Men gather up live chickens and push them into a transport truck. On a family farm, chickens are slaughtered by cutting their throats. Squealing pigs are herded toward the kill floor. Diabetes and other health concerns are addressed. A scientist examines a cow’s stomach through a surgical opening. A mother recounts the events surrounding the death of her child from food poisoning. Verbal intimidation tactics are used to silence farmers. Brief name-calling and profanities are used in the script.
