And right on this thread members of this place support such regulations.
Let them eat tofu! We will dispose of those nasty lobsters and Wagyu beef for them.
If people are concerned about mixing up beef with horse or whatever, why not just grind your own meat? Labeling doesn’t guarantee anything. I buy locally produced meats from small farms because then I know where it comes from and the meat in the grocery store just looks bad these days. It’s more expensive yes, but if you want cheap food you get what you pay for.
Well. I don’t know about you, but 100% AMERICAN beef is something I would rather have. And the idea that it’s okay to mix American food with food from other countries without your knowledge is unsavory to me.
I would much rather have oranges, tomatoes, and strawberries from MY side of the Rio Grande. Imported foods should SAY they are imported. If I CHOOSE to buy Australian lamb, which I have, then that is my choice.
Why is it more expensive to label foods straight up, rather than have labels that are misleading at best which say “PACKAGED IN THE USA” and never tell you where the stuff came from?
