Read the Burger that Shattered Her life NYTIMES, Oct, 2009. and google: Huffingtonpostcom: Pink slime for School Lunch.
Read the chapter 9 from the book above: USDA Government Inspected: Read chapter 9.
Read some blogs about the incident with Stephanie Smith. In this story the young women, who nearly loses her life after consuming beef tainted with E.-coli, is rendered paralyzed, permanently disabled. Then, in another unrelated instance the US Government decided to purchase a meat product that is an amalgam of various parts of the cow, including tendons, along with high fat content, “washed” in ammonia.
These questions suggest a persuasive response.
What is your reaction to the story of Stephanie Smith and to the US government’s decision to serve an amalgam, ammonia-washed meat product to children? Do you have any objection to how we provide food safety? Do you see the US USDA as agencies that, in spite of some unfortunate mishaps, are overall providing good and responsible service to US consumers? What things might you wish to improve or what changes would you institute? Do you take the position that government regulation should be increased or do you think that the government has little influence and effect on the current industry of the super-corporate, oligarchic food industry?
