"The Poisoning of Michigan" is an investigative journalist's account of the contamination of Michigan's dairy cattle with the highly toxic chemical PBB in 1973.

It ended up in cattle feed that was distributed to farms throughout the state. By the time the error was discovered, virtually all nine million residents of Michigan had been ingesting contaminated milk and meat for almost a year.Hide synopsis
