Why is food safety important?
With the rise of lower-cost, higher-output large scale factory farms in the last century, food production was transformed forever. On one hand, there is more food available to more locations and for a cheaper price than ever before. On the other, the sheer scale of and density of product on the factory farm (whether fowl, livestock or produce) makes for an environment that is extremely susceptible to contamination, outbreak and disease. In the last few years we as consumers have experienced the consequences of factory farms failing to properly monitor their operations – nationwide outbreaks of salmonella from eggs and peanuts, E. coli from tainted meat and lettuce and the Mad Cow scare. These have resulted in thousands falling sick and even, in some cases, resulted in death. As factory farming continues to grow, it is vital that safe practices are a part of the foundation of our food system for not only our personal health, but for the health of the planet on which we live.
