Food safety and production workers' rights are part of an important conversation our country has been having with itself since the days of Upton Sinclair's rat burgers. These films carried on that discussion.

"American Dream" is a 1990 documentary about a strike by Hormel workers whose wages were docked despite record company earnings. "Fast Food Nation," starring Dano, is a fictional tale of fast-food chain Mickey's. It burns the corporate burger world with plotlines such as finding fecal matter in the meat they serve millions. The movies will leave you with plenty to talk about - just not at the dinner table.
