Contamination in the food supply is the result of mass agriculture--the processes involved in growing and distributing food on a massive scale. You
can point fingers at this company or that, these people or those, and punish them accordingly, but it will never change anything. Society
demands that other people grow and distribute their own food for them, destroying entire ecosystems and tainting their "products" in the
process of doing so.
Well... what did you think was going to happen? You clear entire forests to cultivate one crop (let's say... peanuts), and then wonder why every
insect on the planet that likes peanuts seems to be concentrated in the same area. And then all the rodents that like the insects and the peanuts move
in and saturate the area with feces (which would be fine if it were given time to break down into the soil naturally, but it isn't). Then the peanuts
are picked and, again, stored under conditions that are ripe for bacterial, fungal, and viral contamination. Etc., etc.
I won't even get into the energy resources extracted and expended so that everyone can have said coveted peanuts. Suffice it to say that, if you're
looking for someone (or some company) to blame when people get sick, you're barking up the wrong tree. The entire production and distribution system
makes these instances inevitable, and with increasing regularity. When it really comes down to it, the only way to know your food is safe is to
abandon the conventional system entirely and either grow/raise your own or, at the very least, stick to locally produced and distributed sources.
All this witch hunt does is give the do-gooders an ego boost.
