Transcript of What has changed since Food Inc.?
Food Safety Modernization Act
Following the death of Kevin Kowalcyk, the boy who died just days after consuming a hamburger, many people became concerned with the methods of cleansing our food and eliminate harmful bacteria. Due to this, Kevin's Law was introduced, formally known as the Food Safety Modernization Act. This allows the Food and Drug Administration to inspect facilities, test specific foods, and recall contaminated products so people like Kevin will not lose their lives over a meal and lack of healthy care in the food industry.

Monsanto, one of the companies addressed in Food, INC. addressed the movie and made comments about their movie.
Monsanto states it only sues farmers that breach their contracts, and they believe in the importance of knowing where their food is coming from. Monsanto, however, still believes that they have the right to sue farmers that have GM crop pollen blown into their fields.
The food industry has not made many significant changes since the creation of Food, INC., but there are more people concerned with the effects of the different food methods on the population.
