Letter: Strive for truth in product labeling
Friday, March 23, 2012
The news on what’s in our ground beef -- most recently, the ammonia-treated “pink slime” that is approved by the USDA to feed to our children in schools -- is unbelievable. I explained this to my 7-year-old as we began packing his lunch. Between the recent arsenic in apple juice, the orange juice “preservation” process, genetically-modified organisms and now this, I am fearful of the FDA and USDA and what they think is OK for us to eat. It’s time for our food to be completely and honestly labeled.
