The Consensus Theory: Cows R Us

425 Words2 Pages
According to the consensus theory, Cows R Us will not be criminally prosecuted because although, fifty people died from the tainted meat, the majority of the general population is safe. The actions that Cows R Us took by not recalling the meat saved them money from recalling several thousand cuts and only paying for the compensation of the families of the deceased. The government also saved time and money by not having to investigate and look through the corporation to find (or in this case, not find) the one individual at fault. The general good for all of society was represented, and the deaths from their decision were compensated for. Cows R Us was informed that some of their meat was infected with a disease that is deadly to humans.
