New food labeling rule under ObamaCare



quote:

If the Food and Drug Administration gets its way, your trip to the grocery store could get a tad pricier.

Supermarket owners argue a pending federal food-labeling rule that stems from the new health care law would overburden thousands of grocers and convenience store owners -- to the tune of $1 billion in the first year alone.

Store owner Tom Heinen said the industry's profit margins already are razor thin. "When you incur a significant cost, there is no way that that doesn't get passed on to the customer in some form," he said.

The rule stems from an ObamaCare mandate that restaurants provide nutrition information on menus. Most in the restaurant industry were supportive of the idea, but when the FDA decided to extend the provision to also affect thousands of supermarkets and convenience stores, the backlash was swift.

The proposed regulation would require store owners to label prepared, unpackaged foods found in salad bars and food bars, soups and bakery items. Erik Lieberman, regulatory counsel at the Food Marketing Institute, said testing foods for nutritional data will require either expensive software or even more costly off-site laboratory assessments.

Yeah this is just what we need now. People moving for new jobs if they are lucky to find one, draining savings accounts. And now grocery prices up even more?

Can I say it?

I want to so bad.

No, I won't. SS would be at my house.

I will say this. WHY, why, why, when many tried to warn about how Obama would destroy us economically did no idiot that voted for him listen? The only people that could possibly defend this dooshbag have to be paid.

re: New food labeling rule under ObamaCare


In the day of the smart phone, anyone too fricking dumb to ascertain the nutritional value of typical items at the WalMart deserves to fricking die. I mean seriously. Gimme a fricking break on the goddamned mommy state. It's not a nanny state, it's a goddamned diaper your fricking naked butt, let you suck from it's tit, mommy.

In the day of the smart phone, anyone too fricking dumb


See, although there's a whole lot of dumb, that's to be sure of, I'm not sure it's as much dumb as it is lazy and disinterested on a whole in things like nutrition and food in general besides knowing what they like to put in their mouths. And hey look, whatever floats people's boat, but if people were even slightly interested in the nutritional value of food and prepared foods, as you say in the day of the smart phone and the answer only a google away, people would already know about it, and many do, but those who don't have no interest in it because other things are apparently more important to them and grocery stores being forced to incur the cost of putting that on foods isn't going to make a difference to them anyway. It's not like it's the first time people are putting things in their mouths here. We all do it multiple times a day, and have so since we've been born.

I agree. This nanny state crap is sickening. It's not for lack of information already out there. It's for lack of care or concern. Let them do what they want to. If they want to eat garbage and become a walrus, that's on them, but to say we need nutritional info on prepared foods is a huge waste, as they're going to eat what they want to anyway. They know better. They just don't care. How many people do you think actually go to say Taco Bell and think about nutrition? Seriously? There are always very long lines in the drive through, and this after Taco Bell even admitted a year ago that their meat isn't all meat, but lots of fillers. They never missed a beat. Why? Because the average person going to Taco Bell doesn't care about that. They just want it, and many crave it. So let them have at it. I'm far less concerned over the nutritional information as I am full disclosure of food preparation and such being made accessible to the public online, and it is for the most part. And like with nutrition, if you care to know, you can easily find that out and be in the know today with our technology.

Yeah, it's not like it's going to make the price of food go up or anything like that...I guess people who don't actually have to pay for food, it's not a big deal as long as someone else pays for it..

Oh you can rest assured that if the price of food increases significantly, there will be a corresponding increase in food stamps. Gotta keep the voters happy!

re: New food labeling rule under ObamaCare


Now I remember where I also heard of this subject in complete infuriation, a few years ago.

This person, (and I don't say this lightly!)



also wants...










WAIT FOR IT













WAIT FOR IT...











ALL Vending Machines Re-Labeled to the mere tune of...

$421.3 million

Because mind numbed, half-brained liberals, like Queen FA, think that if Johnny reads on a vending machine; he is not buying a diet candy bar and a salad. He will somehow not get fat.

Minus of common sense to the 2000th degree!

I have a new way of posting to all ya'll paid Obama hacks.DIAF,KMA,GFY.

But since I am in a particularly good mood. I will bother to ask you another question about ObamaCare.

quote:

End Stage Renal Disease

SUNK COSTS $20 million

PROSPECTIVE COSTS $67.13 million



As was discussed in another thread... is this how much death panels will cost?

It's not so much that, but increased labeling will likely not have the desired outcome which is decreased obesity. People know which foods are good or bad for them. The problem is, we eat them anyway. The problem is not a lack of knowledge, but a lack of will power.

Agreed. 30-40 years ago, providing information was probably much more effective. How many smokers today honestly are ignorant to the fact that it may be bad for their health? Are there any?

Same with food. If people gave a shit, they would already know.

So if you go to the fresh food section of the grocery store, there will be Nutrition labels plastered everywhere.

So the salad bar with have the black and white labels posted overtop of EVERY bowl of shit? And of course, we have to make sure they are large enough for people to actually read them, so I'd imagine they need to be 8x10"

What a clusterfrick

And I'm sure the food would have to be inspected for label accuracy at regular intervals. More government jobs!!!

Obama will most likely appoint a new,new food agency to tell the FDA if they are labeling the clam chowder in the salad bar correctly. It will also need a food czar.

Control of the banks,cars,and lemon aid stands and now big brother needs to spend millions to help lard asses stay on their diets as Oprah and Michelle Obama want this for their monthly fad diets.What about the job of relabeling every fricking vending machine in America? Will CNN be the only thing you can watch in airports bowing to Obama? Oh wait... it will be huge Obama paintings and statues in all airports with fountains you can throw a coin in for hope and donation to the dear leader from hell.



Do you laugh or cry? Seriously, are we in the twilight zone?

I'm of the opinion that the USA deserves everything that Obama has to deliver. We certainly asked for it . . . TWICE . . . as a matter of fact.

Now, Obama might deliver nothing but good things ! Don't assume that I'm saying that Obama will deliver only bad things. Time will tell.

But, one thing is clear -- we deserve everything that the has to deliver.
