From a reader:

I propose that a special program be developed to ensure that food left in dumpsters meets appropriate standards of sanitation and nurtrition.  All food prepared for disposal in dumpsters should be tested for E. coli and other dangers.  It should also be screened to ensure that no more than 30 percent of the food in dumpsters is fat, that there is 0 percent trans fat, and that the contents of the dumpster are low in sodium.  Each store and restaurant should have at least two dumpsters, one clearly labeled as “vegan” and the other “non-vegan.”
