    This just solved dinner plans. DiGiorno, the makers of one of the most popular frozen-pizza brands, has decided to cut ties with a Wisconsin dairy farm after the disclosure of a video that showed workers beating, stabbing, kicking, and taking whips to sick and injured cattle. The farm sells its milk to cheese supplier Foremost Farms, which is the supplier for DiGiorno (owned by Nestle USA). Wise Brothers Farm, the operation captured in the video, says the two employees in the video have been fired and another has been reassigned, and that it was unaware of the abuse.
