Junk-Food Journalism

A new book detailing the "dark side of the all-American meal" could use a little more beef itself

In other words, a reading of Schlosser suggests this: Don't expect much to change in this fast-food empire. Don't expect outbreaks of food poisoning -- like the one that killed three children who ate Jack in the Box burgers in Washington State in 1993 -- to cease, even though the Jack in the Box chain, nearly brought to ruin by the ensuing publicity, has instituted an elaborate inspection system for its meat. Don't expect improved working conditions for people in the fast-food industry or the wretches toiling in remote backwater towns who produce the meats. Don't expect to have it your way.

This argument, we have to admit, rings true. Of course, even a broken clock gives the right time twice a day.
