Agri View: Crackdown on Mislabeled Products

DanAgri View, Dairy & Livestock

crackdownEverett Griner talks about the crackdown on mislabeled products in today’s Agri View. Everett discusses the progress the FDA is having on cracking down on these products.

It kind of jolted me. All the milk you are buying doesn’t come from a cow. It doesn’t? Some of it comes from coconuts, almonds, cashews. Even soybeans. You better believe dairy farmers are not happy about this. A lots of supermarkets are not either.

You think that is all. Well, what you are buying for rice, may not be rice. Here is what brought all of this about. A lot of people are pleased they can buy all of these substitute products. Now, Congress has stepped in. They are asking FDA, the Food and Drug Administration, to crack down on those who mislabel their products.

The question is, what do you think? Some diets may call for these substitutes. Others may cause problems. But the buyer should know.

This time Congress is on the right track.

That’s Agri View for today. I’m Everett Griner…
