BuzzFeed partners with Workshop

Posted: May 13, 2015 | Tags: journalism

FRONTLINE and the Investigative Reporting Workshop analyzed three federal databases for “The Trouble with Chicken," the third in a series of programs and stories about antibiotic resistance.

BuzzFeed News also partnered with us in the research for this latest program. BuzzFeed obtained data from the Food Safety and Inspection Service and the Food and Drug Administration through a Freedom of Information Act request filed by its reporter Chris Hamby.

BuzzFeed News agreed to share the data with producer Rick Young and reporter Emma Schwartz and the Workshop's data editor, David Donald. BuzzFeed also wrote about the program, which aired last night nationwide on PBS.

The full program about the sickness caused by salmonella poisoning — and the government's inability to predict it or prevent it through poultry-plant inspections — can be seen on the Workshop's site, where you'll also find additional stories.
