A Safer, Healthier Food System

Safe, healthy, sustainable, and affordable food choices should be available to everyone. CR uncovers key food issues—including bacterial contamination, heavy metals in food, and overuse of drugs in food production—and works with consumers, manufacturers and policymakers to improve the food system in ways big and small – through helping people make informed choices and improving business practices and federal and state consumer protections.
