Description

A report on field sanitation in Florida agriculture. We discovered flagrant violations of state and federal field sanitation laws. We found that government enforcement of those laws had fallen through bureaucratic cracks. Our tests of local strawberries detected alarming E-coli bacteria contamination. The local agriculture community disputed our findings. Farmers were angry. Yet, the story turned out to be an early warning for illness that broke out elsewhere last year.
