Government shouldn’t have to tell you. You would think AMERICAN producers would WANT to label their products. And the same goes for any country that wishes for us to BUY their products. That is only commonsense...unless you are trying to hide something, (like horsemeat or dog or cat,) in which case, go ahead and make me suspicious enough to leave THOSE products on the shelf.
That is why I absolutely will not buy prepackaged hamburgers and/or meatballs or anything of that nature. I actually DO read labels and there are just some things I refuse to put in my house let alone in my stomach or my child’s stomach.
For instance, anything that says ‘meat’ sauce or ‘meat’ filled that doesn’t say 100% BEEF stays on the store shelf.
That's what I was thinking, too. Sounds like a "no brainer" to me.
So, how do you think the labeling started? I don’t have direct evidence, but I suspect it was a conspiracy of crony capitalists using government power to limit or eliminate an innovative competitor.
That’s my personal experience with this kind of thing. Why is the current government mandated food label ideal?
