As muckrakers, Upton Sinclair, author of The Jungle, and Robert Kenner, director of the film Food, Inc., have targeted the American meat packaging plants. They accomplish this by meeting the common goal of creating awareness for the people of the U.S. about what the citizens are actually consuming.
