FDA's new food labeling rule
Posted by Staff
According to Fox News on Feb. 6, supermarket and convenience store trips are going to cost everyone more in the near future. A provision of the Affordable Health Care Act, otherwise known as “Obamacare,” mandates that supermarkets and convenience stores put nutrition labels on prepared, unpackaged foods like salad bar components and bakery items.

Supermarket owners are in a tizzy over the new rule and claim that it will cost them $1 billion additional in the first year alone. Facebook iconFacebook Fark iconFark Furl iconFurl
