Go to the Databases libguide, linked below, and select the Hot Topics tab. There you will see several links to databases.

Click on the link to Opposing Viewpoints. Click on the Browse Issues link in the grey banner at the top, and scroll to find the Factory Farming link. 

Selecting this will take you to a page with an overview article at the top, links to Viewpoints articles (pro/con), and many other types of resources. The Viewpoints articles are probably your best bet. Once you select the option to view all, you will see subject limiters on your left to narrow down to food safety and other relevant topics. 

CQ Researcher is another good database. In that database, search the phrase food safety by typing the it into the search bar at the top. As you scroll through the results, notice the articles on Genetically Modified Foods, Food Safety and Factory Farms. Be sure to scroll to see them all.

The titles are hyperlinked. Simply click to get into the articles.

Academic Search Complete has articles, as well. Search hormones AND food safety. Use the limiters on the left for full text, publication date, and subject -thesaurus term (official EBSCO subjects) to narrow your results. You can run a second search on antibiotics AND food safety.

I also included a link with more tips on searching our Hot Topics databases.
