“Eat, Drink, and Be Wary: How Unsafe Is Our Food?”
by Charles M. Duncan
Veteran journalist Duncan demonstrates that fears about food safety in the U.S. are not unfounded. Bit by bit, he examines “our enormous food safety problems,” the reasons why the government has failed to protect consumers, and the consequences of such lax oversight.
According to Duncan, the American government drags its feet and has kept secret public information about enforcement, closures, and seizures of food processors, protecting big businesses at the public’s expense. Though not the most optimistic—or appetizing—volume on modern-day food production, Duncan’s work is comprehensive and readers concerned with the safety and reliability of their foods will appreciate his efforts.
