The Omnivore's Dilemma Author Michael Pollan Comments On Massive Egg Recall

As 550 billion eggs are being recalled due to a possible salmonella epidemic, many are wondering just how safe our food system is.

The Omnivore’s Dilemma author Michael Pollan recently spoke with Dr. Sanjay Gupta on CNN and explained why he believes these outbreaks are happening. Pollan explains that the food industry has fought tooth and nail to keep regulation agencies separate thus weakening the entire system.

“Our food industry has fought to keep power divided and power divided is never strong,” he said.

The author explains that many of the food safety issues we face today are the result of factory farms and suggests people buy eggs from farmers’ markets like he does.

But here’s the thing (and this is a pretty big thing): farmers’ markets simply can’t feed every man, woman, and child in the country. Factory farming is horrible, but it was designed for a reason: to meet a growing demand and price point. It seems to us that we should start looking at how and what we consume, and find sustainable solutions (and alternatives) to provide for a booming population.
