The Fight for Food Safety

Hosted by

Barb Kowalcyk

In 2001 Barbara Kowalcyk's 2-year old son died after contracting E. coli O157:H7 from a hamburger.  The tragedy of his death propelled her into a life of food-safety activism.  She started the non-profit Center for Foodborne Illness and continues to lobby Congress for an improved food safety system.

Her fight is chronicled in the film Food Inc.  Evan is hosting a Q&A with producer Elise Perlstein on Saturday, June 13 at 7:30 pm at the Nuart Theater.
