The world's largest meat producer has suspending shipments from a Kentucky pig farm after the release of a shocking undercover video.

WARNING: The video contains very graphic images

The "Mercy for Animals" video showed employees at a Simpson County Tosh Farms site hitting, kicking, and throwing the animals.

The Tennessee-based company says many of the actions in the video violate its policy, and it will re-train staff immediately.

Tosh Farms says a vet found no problems at the site today.
