Food Industry: how things are made

Filmmaker Robert Kenner lifts the veil United States food industry, exposing the highly mechanized underbelly that's been hidden from the American consumer. United States food supply is now controlled by a handful of corporations that often put profit ahead of consumer health, the livelihood of the American farmer, the safety of workers and the environment. The country has bigger-breasted chickens, the perfect pork chop, insecticide-resistant soybean seeds, even tomatoes that won't go bad, but it also has new strains of E. coli — the harmful bacteria that causes illness for an estimated 73,000 Americans annually.
