Summary
  • This two-part guide to our food system's problems and how consumers can help protect themselves is written by two seasoned journalists who helped break the story of the 2011 listeria outbreak that killed 33 people
  • Nearly 50 million Americans will get food poisoning this year. Spoiled, doctored or infected food will send more than 100,000 people to the hospital. Three thousand will die. The authors explain how the food system works-- and more importantly how it doesn't work. They provide useful, friendly advice gleaned from the cutting-edge laboratories, kitchens and courtrooms where the national food system is taking new shape
Summary
Citing a rise in food-borne illnesses in recent years and the challenges posed to consumers in the form of rapidly rising costs, an analysis of problems in current food-safety standards explains how to make informed decisions
