DeLauro, Blumenthal Push for More Informative Food Labels

by Categorized: Richard Blumenthal, Rosa DeLauro Date:

Federal food labeling requirements haven\’t been updated since 1990 and often don\’t provide the information consumers need to make healthful choices.

\"food-label\"

That\’s the argument made by U.S. Rep. Rosa DeLauro and Sen. Richard Blumenthal of Connecticut and Rep. Frank Pallone Jr. of New Jersey.

The three lawmakers are pushing a bill that would revamp food labeling requirements. They will hold a press conference in Washington Thursday to highlight their efforts.

    We should have informative labels on politicians, telling us clearly how harmful they can be and how disingenuous their words are.

      Considering americans are fat and sick…yes we should probably be thinking a bit more about what we all shove down our gullets.

      Two useless teats on a bull are Kim and drain. And one is already half way over to the other side, if I may say so.
