poisonedJeff Benedict. Poisoned: The True Story of the Deadly E. Coli Outbreak that Changed the Way Americans Eat. Buena Vista, VA, Inspire Books, ©2011. QR201.E82 B46 2011.

From the publisher: In Poisoned, Jeff Benedict delivers a jarringly candid narrative of the fast-moving disaster drawing on access to key 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. This is the story of the permanent transformation of our food supply chain, and the young maverick lawyer, Bill Marler, who staked his career on bringing the victims justice without compromise. Fast Food Nation meets A Civil Action in this riveting account of how we learned the hard way to truly watch what we eat.
