Baesler's Market in Terre Haute told us it is aware of the allegations against Fair Oaks Farms.

Fairlife said it has stopped taking deliveries from the farm.

Baesler's told us it is important to put real thought into suppliers.

"We like to keep it as local as possible because usually, that means you are getting better standards and practices and policies and a better idea of what's actually going on," Kristine O'Hare, from Baesler's, said.

Fairlife said it also intends to do audits at its supplier farms.

The goal is to ensure the farms are up to the high standards of animal care.
