Breaking news for everyone's consumption

Welcome to the Food Safety Summit — Visit Booth #221

Get your personal signed copy of Poisoned, the true account of the 1993 Jack in the Box E. coli outbreak by award-winning investigative journalist Jeff Benedict at Food Safety Summit.

While attending the Food Safety Summit, be sure to visit Booth #221.

Poisoned, just released in paperback, is available for purchase for the retail price of $16.95 Wednesday only between 10:30 am and 2:30 pm at the Food Safety News booth #221. Author Jeff Benedict will be on site to sign books.

In Poisoned, award-winning investigative journalist Jeff Benedict delivers a jarringly candid narrative of the 1993 E. coli outbreak traced to Jack in the Box hamburgers, drawing on access to confidential documents and exclusive interviews with the real-life characters at the center of the drama—the families whose children were infected, the Jack in the Box executives forced to answer for the tragedy, the physicians and scientists who identified E. coli as the culprit, and the legal teams on both sides of the historic lawsuits that ensued.

The book—described as Fast Food Nation meets A Civil Action—is a riveting account of how we learned the hard way to truly watch what we eat. It has received critical acclaim from book reviewers and food industry experts:

“Movie-like … Benedict does a dramatic public service by showing us what happened behind the scenes.” – Rebekah Denn, The Christian Science Monitor

“A new, thriller-style account of the horrors of that E. coli outbreak and the subsequent events, including the groundbreaking rulings making O157:H7 an ‘adulterant.’” – Mark Bittman, The New York Times

Food Safety News staff will be available throughout the week at the Food Safety Summit, being held this week at the Baltimore Convention Center.  Come by Booth 221!
