About the forum
Food labeling is a complex and controversial issue... a Google search on "food labeling" gets 23,900,000 hits. While there are a variety of legal requirements for food labels, the question of what else the label should and shouldn't include is argued from a number of perspectives. Should the label include information about the country-of-origin or production practices used? Should labeling apply to fresh foods as well as processed foods? What about prepared, unpackaged foods in restaurants or salad bars? When should label information be mandatory as opposed to voluntary? Is labeling necessary or sufficient for informing the consumer?
