Episode Summary

Shell Game
(11/16/2010) The issue of food safety was brought to light again this summer with the recall of millions of eggs from a farmer with a very bad record. His name is Jack DeCoster, and he’s been in trouble many times before. He was labeled a habitual violator in Iowa and he’s paid numerous fines in other states to avoid scrutiny. But the FDA didn’t have the power to stop him as he jumped from state to state. But that may soon change. Congress is considering legislation that for the first time in decades would strengthen the authority of the agencies in charge of monitoring our food - because at this point who’s guarding the hen house is up for debate. Also, we go inside a farm that's trying to satisfy both safety concerns and animal rights activists. It’s the first of its kind in the country and may be the beginning of a new trend in food safety. And, in remembrance of Veteran’s Day we pay tribute to Bill Millin, who may very well be the last man ever to lead an army into battle playing the bagpipes.moreless
