Whistle Where You Work 24: School Food Safety

Mark Cohen discusses the state of school food safety with Peter Eisler, co-author of a USA Today series on food bourne illnesses in schools, and Sarah Kline from the Center for Science in the Public Interest. They talk about the failure of the federal government and companies to alert schools about tainted product, the labyrinthine network of food suppliers, the lax standards for schools when compared to fast food, and the inadequate inspection rate of cafeterias. Then Mark talks with Gordon Hamel, whose whistle blowing caused President H.W.Bush to shut down a White House agency. "Whistle Where You Work" is dedicated to whistleblowers, and occupational free speech, accountability and transparency issues from the Government Accountability Project.
