A scare newsletter called "Food Poisoning Bulletin" warns that if government reduces food inspections, "food will be less safe ... (because) marginal companies ... (will) cut corners."
Problems in society are rarely solved by Washington bureaucrats yet they seem to have taken the adage, ‘if at first you don’t succeed, try, try again’ to heart. Accordingly, the government is addressing the nation’s growing obesity epidemic with a regulation: Section 4205, the menu labeling provision attached to ObamaCare meant to “aid consumers in selecting more healthful diets.”
To see the painful impact of media-driven health and food scares one need look no further than current headlines stemming from network news attacks on USDA-approved beef. At least 600 jobs are now in jeopardy as the company under attack was forced to suspend operations at three separate plants.
