    Factory-Farmed Chicken

    Is your chicken safe to eat? Get the facts.

    Food Safety

    As reoccurring recalls and contamination uncover the serious issues with the way our food is managed, food safety regulation is an urgent dilemma that must be addressed.


    Wenonah Hauter’s book, Foodopoly: The Battle Over the Future of Food and Farming in America, examines the corporate consolidation and control over our food system, what it means for farmers and consumers and how it can be fixed. Publisher’s Weekly calls it “…a meticulously researched tour de force…”

    Factory Farms

    Genetically Engineered Foods

    Genetically modified foods are often untested, frequently require dangerous chemicals in their farming, and may be a threat to organic foods and to the environment. Help us stop them.

    The Case Against Perdue

    Two years ago environmentalists represented by an attorney now with Food & Water Watch brought a Clean Water Act case against Perdue and one of its contract poultry operations for polluting waterways that empty out into the threatened Chesapeake Bay.

    Radiation Impacts

    The full impact of the Japanese nuclear crisis remains to be seen, but the health risks posed by radioactive contamination are well documented. A major avenue for exposure is through food and water.

    Consumer Labels

    The long-awaited rule requiring mandatory country-of-origin labeling (COOL) for food went into effect recently. We have been fighting for years to get this information into consumers hands. So can we relax now? Unfortunately, no.
