Pulitzer Prize winner Deborah Blum writes the New York Times bestselling book about the dramatic true story of food safety in the United States. In The Poison Squad: One Chemist's Single-Minded Crusade for Food Safety at the Turn of the Twentieth Century, Blum tells the stories of the heroes who were led by the incomparable Dr. Harvey Washington Wiley.

Thousands of children die from milk every year. In 1833, everything changed when Dr. Harvey Washington Wiley became the chief chemist of the United States agriculture department.
