Food is not always mass produced. You've heard of blood sausage? (biroldo, boudin noir, blutwurst, morcilla, black pudding ...)
Slide piggy through a trough as you behead him, and I would think that waste material from the intestines would get mixed in with the blood, as the sphincter opens up and everything pours out. Not acceptable for the sausage makers. In truth, pretty darn disgusting as thoughts go even for the meat, but as large intestinal contents are semi-liquid until toward the very end, there would be no way to separate the blood from the fecal material. How does one wash something off of a liquid?
You know, at this point, vegetarian food suddenly got a lot more appealing. But maybe that's just me.
