Wall Street Journal's eight-part series on food safety investigates the case of cyanide-tainted Chilean grapes; unsanitary meat processing plants; U.S. Department of Agriculture's flawed plan to let meatpackers speed up their slaughterhouse operations; gaps in the nation's milk-monitoring programs that allow veterinary drugs and other contaminants to go undetected; the bootleg shellfish industry, which harvests from sewage-contaminated waters and may be spreading hepatitis and food poisoning; inadequate border inspection programs; flaws in the Federal Crop Insurance Corp. costing taxpayers millions of dollars; and lack of safety regulation that costs farmers their health and sometimes their lives, February - November 1989.
