Country of Origin Labeling

Speaking of items that should make food companies take notice –

WASHINGTON – U.S. consumers overwhelmingly support stricter food labeling laws, with 92 percent of Americans wanting to know which country produced the food they are buying, a consumer magazine said on Tuesday.

Consumer Reports said recent food scares, including worries about peanut butter and lettuce, have made Americans more interested in knowing not only how their food was produced but where it was made.

While I don’t think it’s the campaign issue that the MSNBC article believes it to be (’cause,, y’know, that whole Iraq thing), it’s still an impressive statistic. However, if you do wish it to be addressed, by all means contact your congresscritters, both state and federal.
