Look! Food Transportation the Weakest Link? Mixing cargo in food trucks

Here is an intereting article from QA Mag on food transportation.

"One real example of a “worst-case scenario” that Ferree encountered at a previous plant involved a truck that arrived at the dock to pick up a shipment. When Ferree looked at the load already on the truck, he saw that it was carrying a tank of radioactive waste. “I refused to put our food into the truck—and the driver ask me why!” Ferree said. Although worst-case, it was also one of the easiest decisions he’s had to make. Worse is when you don’t know what a truck is carrying—or was carrying before it got to you, he said." - from the article.

Of course it is. After all it's prone to the most risks and dangerous misconduct (apart from the hazardous materials, of course).
