Chihuahua In the Coal Mine

This illustrated presentation details the far-reaching effects of the new global food system and uncovers unexpected connections between food supplies for pets, farm animals, and humans. As detailed in her new book Pet Food Politics: The Chihuahua in the Coal Mine, Nestle traces tainted pet food ingredients back to their source in China, precipitating the largest recall of consumer products in U.S. history in 2007. What began as a problem “merely” for cats and dogs soon became an issue of tremendous concern to everyone.
