business news in context, analysis with attitude

In the Chicago market, a group called the Cancer Prevention Coalition has attacked the decision by Albertsons’ Jewel-Osco division to sell fresh irradiated beef, on the grounds that such meat could contain carcinogens as a result of the irradiation.
KC's View:
Actually, we’re sort of surprised that this is the first real negative reaction we’ve heard now that irradiation has been gaining a lot of fans.

It is up to retailers to dispose of this issue simply, factually, and effectively.
