One of the central problems in the discussion on food waste is that many people throw away food too early. A report co-authored by the Natural Resources Defense Council and Harvard Law School’s Food Law and Policy Clinic shows that misconceptions about the expiration date on food leads 90% of American consumers to throw away edible food. Consequently, America waste 40% of their food production every year. Many people do not know that freezing meat can make it last longer. When the meat becomes frozen, the growth rate of bacteria drops significantly, enough to make it last for op to nine months after the expiration date.

For instance, in the movie, they have a short anecdote about Kevin Kowalcyk, a kid that died at the mere age of two and a half years old because of an E.coli outbreak with the meat in the burgers at the Jack in the Box restaurant, yet the health department officials didn’t do anything about it. This proves what the director is trying to show because it tells you about how really young children have died because the slaughterhouse workers aren’t paying enough attention to whether or not the meat is contaminated, which is costing lives, and nobody has cared enough to do anything about it. Besides being an anecdote, this is also an emotional appeal that proves Kenner’s statement as it makes you feel sad for Kevin and agree that people need to give more consideration to if the food they’re producing is actually good for you. In summary, Robert Kenner uses pathos to prove his outlook. To conclude, many of the most excellent artists, including Eric Schlosser, writer of Fast Food Nation, Mike Pollan, author of, The Omnivore’s Dilemma, and Robert Kenner, producer of the film, Food, Inc., use ethos, pathos, and logos, to prove their viewpoints.

Schlosser investigates and works hard to get primary information and personal experience to share with those interested, in this case, the fast food industry.
