NEWS & PUBLIC AFFAIRS

A production of  

Television's premier public affairs series, WGBH's Frontline is the recognized leader in producing compelling and engaging programs that explore the issues of our times. From foreign affairs to family matters, social issues to criminal justice, politics to the press, Frontline goes beyond the superficial sound bite of the television newsmagazine to offer in-depth, intelligent, and thought-provoking stories and investigative reports.

Frontline: "The Trouble with Chicken"

Premieres Tuesday, April. 7 at 10pm on WGBH 2

Frontline investigates the spread of dangerous pathogens in our meat — particularly poultry — and why the food-safety system isn’t stopping the threat. Focusing on an outbreak of salmonella Heidelberg at one of the nation’s largest poultry processors, the film shows how contaminants are evading regulators and causing more severe illnesses at a time when Americans are consuming more chicken than ever.
