See this is why I am not a libertarian. Stossel claims that competition and bad publicity is enough to keep food safe for consumers. Well it's not and never has been. Some harmful effects might not show up right away for instance. Also a company could cut corners and if anyone got sickened or died they could simply shut it down for a while and then reopen under a different name. Now I suppose you could say that good consumers would be able to research this and avoid bad companies. That may be true. But it's a little much to ask kids to do the same.
