The documentary Food Inc. is set to open Friday, June 12. The film explores the purported dangers in Americas food supply chain, and addresses public health issues, the environment, and worker and animal rights.
As reported by Reuters, the film shows footage inside cattle, pork and chicken production plants, some secretly recorded by immigrant workers. Major meat and poultry companies declined to be interviewed for the film; however, trade associations collaborated to create Web sites to counter the films claims.
"Each sector of the industry that's named is doing its part to counter a lot of the misinformation in the movie," said Lisa Katic, a dietitian and consultant with an unnamed coalition of trade associations representing the food industry.
