There is a huge health and environmental scandal hiding in our industrial system of meat and poultry production. Dangerous uses of arsenic, antibiotics, growth hormones dominate the meat and poultry industry in the U.S and elsewhere. Only the European Union stands alone in establishing strong health and environmental standards for the industry.

A River of Waste exposes these toxic dangers that many Americans face. Some scientists have gone so far as to call the condemned current factory farm practices as “mini Chernobyls.” In 1906, public outrage at the scandal led to major reforms that cleaned up a corrupt and dangerous system. It is the hope of the filmmakers to mobilize a similar public outcry for reform.
