    C.  Except it wasn't only this cartoon that led to the legislation. There were other political cartoons on the subject of the quality of packed meat. It was the novelized form of Upton Sinclair's serial expose of Chicago's packing plants, 'The Jungle', that caused far more outrage in Americans about the unsanitary food conditions than about the plight of the mostly-immigrant workers.  That outrage led directly to Congress passing the Pure Food and Drug Act and the Meat Inspection Act of 1906.
