This can and must be a State, Local, & individual issue again. Men must have the freedom to buy food off the crop directly from the farmer or rancher.

Most people are too inconveinenced to hit the local farmers market so they drop by the local supermarket. Very little local foods at Krogers/Wal Mart. I think it would be difficult, and extremely expensive for Del Monte to have to make 50 different state labels for each can of corn for each state they send their product. It would be a labeling nightmare.

We are also becoming a importer of food. When I was at Sam's Club the other day nearly all the fish is from China and much of the veggies and fruits was from Mehico. I want to have some minimal food safety standards/labels especially for anything that comes out of those two countries.

Don’t buy anything that doesn’t have labels or go to any store that doesn’t insure safety.

Just because goverment doesn’t mandate something doesn’t mean it won’t exist.
