Episode 18: The best Defense is Food Defense

Mitch and Andrew break down threats to our food supply with the man with the best title  in the world: Pepsico's Senior Manager for Global Food Defense, Jason Bashura. From the Dalles salad bar salmonella to the Michigan salad bar mouse poisonings, from Ikea's horsemeat to the scariest Mexican food in Kansas, we cover where food defense has been, where it's going, and why we may never be able to drink iced tea again. Props to the FDA for the new "Final Rule for Mitigation Strategies to Protect Food Against Intentional Adulteration". Okay, it could use a sexier name, but it's awesome. Finally - we inaugurate the Dukes of Hazards campaign to reinstate the Rick Rescorla National Award for Resilience - Men of Cornwall stand ye steady!
