The “process could take years to complete” according to a May 11 Wall Street Journal article.
This is akin to the pest control guy coming to your door, releasing a vial of termites and then telling you that you have termites. If the government wouldn’t have messed with food labels to start with, we wouldn’t need this years long process.
It’s not just the years, but the money spent doing this. Costs that will be passed along to the consumer!
But, isn’t more information better? Won’t we make better food choices with better front of package labeling?
Let’s see, we’ve been adding regulations and words to our food labels for years. Do we look like we we’re using the information? As a nation, are getting healthier? Studies suggest we talk the talk and say we want more info but we don’t walk the walk and use the info.
I, for one, don’t need any additional information on my label. Print the ingredient list larger and that’s it. I can figure out almonds alone are healthy than when they’re covered with caramel and chocolate. I don’t need a label trying to tell me a candy bar is an “energy bar”…
How about you? What do you want to see on your food label to eat well and be well?
