Organic food watchdog groups are turning up the heat on ABC, demanding the network fire John Stossel for his false 20/20 report about organic vegetables. The network, which will air a retraction on tonight's show, blamed the debacle on Stossel's producer, David Fitzpatrick, slapping him with a one-month suspension without pay. Stossel, meanwhile, was to receive a "formal reprimand." But Kenneth Cook, president of the Environmental Working Group, tells the New York Post that Fitzpatrick has been made the scapegoat and "I will continue to make noise until [Stossel] gets fired." The controversial report, which first aired in February and was rebroadcast last month despite protests, intimated that organic foods could be deadly. According to Variety, the Organic Trade Association is considering a lawsuit.
