Food writer Corby Kummer spoke with Boston Public Radio on Thursday about how the meat industry has treated its workers during the pandemic.

"[The meat industry execs] are the evil actors — they won't release the number of people in their slaughterhouses who are infected or are dying, and OSHA [Occupational Safety and Health Administration] has been completely asleep at the wheel doing nothing to sue the slaughterhouses," he said.

Kummer is a senior editor at The Atlantic, an award-winning food writer, and a senior lecturer at the Tufts Friedman School of Nutrition and Policy.
