2 Investigators: Food Cart Dangers

Alderman Foodtruck had a dream:

At the end of last year, I wrote a three-item wish list of things I’d like to see in 2010. My first wish: to see food trucks operating on the streets of Chicago.

Reporters from WBBM go out and have a look:

There's absolutely no city regulation or inspection of food carts in Chicago. So is it safe to eat from these carts?

The 2 Investigators checked some of them out and found potential health and safety violations at each of the eight food carts they visited with an undercover camera.

What they find isn't pretty -- or at least appetizing. The solution that the 'experts' offer is to make sure "these food carts also are regulated and are safe for consumers everywhere" -- though how such an enormous task is supposed to be accomplished is never quite explained.
