In Bittman’s Good Friday Food Links blog http://bittman.blogs.nytimes.com/2012/04/06/good-friday-food-links/#more-4049  he talks about many different things that have been going on. The first thing he talks about is the F.D.A. and how the declined the chemical BPA from food and drink packaging. Other F.D.A news is who’s side are they on when it comes to the Just Label It campaign. According to the campaign they turned in one million signatures but the agency says they only received a little under 400 signatures. So who is lying? Monsanto representative threatened a public official in Vermont that they would sue if they state passed GMO labeling. Wow! they want to sue because people want to know if they are getting genetically modified food. Hmmmm that seems pretty harsh. People have the right to know what they are eating.A house bill was introduced on the requiring of the labeling on pink slime. But apparently pink slime isn’t our only problem there were 26 hard to pronounce ingredients in a burger. That is very disturbing and wrong.
