Terri Gross, host of NPR’s “Fresh Air”, recently interviewed agriculture expert Tom Philpott about the meat industry in America. Philpott did a great job explaining topics such as pink slime (inedible parts of animals that are ground up and added to meat products), e. coli contamination, mad cow disease, and the general process of meat production.
Because of reporting like this, the public has expressed outrage about pink slime, demand has dropped, and the company that manufactures it is likely going out of business. It’s a step in the right direction!
