Phyllis McKelvey worked in the poultry business for 44 years and dedicated her professional life to protecting the integrity of the food supply. She has, in her words, “walked on both sides of the fence,” having worked for the poultry industry and the federal government. Now McKelvey has come forward with her concerns about new USDA regulations as part of the Government Accountability Project’s American Whistleblower Tour. Amanda Hitt, Director of GAP’s Food Integrity Campaign, facilitates a discussion with McKelvey about the role whistleblowers play in protecting the public interest and ensuring food integrity. Amanda Hitt also discusses industrialized food production and distribution practices as well as efforts to implement “ag gag” laws, which seek to stop whistleblowers from reporting instances of abuse within the food system.
