Summary:

The consumer group Food and Water Watch updated their 2006 report on U.S. chicken plants who have failed Salmonella testing in 2006 and 2007. Using FOIA requests, the group retrieved testing data from 27 broiler (young) chicken plants that failed, in 16 states. At publication time the USDA was still not publishing the names of the failing plants or companies, despite saying it would in 2007.
