American Meat and poultry recalls up 80% in last six years
A new report says that recalls of meat and poultry in America has increased by 80% over the past six years.
The research shows that one in six Americans get sick every year from contaminated food, with 3,000 deaths per year.
Adam Garber, a researcher for the U.S. Public Interest Research Group, told CBS:
"Something is rotten in our slaughterhouses and our fields, and so common sense protections from farm to fork can help prevent that,"
"There are opportunities to improve and hold companies liable when they are violating food safety plans."
