Meat labels will include where animal was born and slaughtered,
More assinine regulations! What next, the animals names, color of their hair or if they like moonlit walks on the beach!! Nuts!
WASHINGTON ó If the feds get their way, meats on supermarket shelves will include some unappetizing details, such as where the animal was slaughtered.
Find that stomach-turning?
Better get used to it: Labels on meat products sold in the U.S. could soon read like a sad mini-biography of the ranch-raised beasts.
In a little-known regulatory action that has produced a storm of criticism, the U.S. Department of Agriculture has moved to rework how meats are sold at retailers, including grocery stores, are labeled. Under the Obama administrationís plan, meats would have to include labels informing the consumer where the animal was born, raised and slaughtered.
