Truth in food labels? Not in the USA!

Go to a grocery store in the United States of America, and you will find it challenging to determine the nation of origin of that food item. It has become an issue since large quantities of tainted and poison foods are being imported into the United States. The United States Congress refused to pass legislation authorizing such truth in labeling. That is because the Congress has been purchased by the food importers. Yet in Australia and Japan, the food importers were not successful in purchasing the legislative bodies of those countries. Because in Australia and Japan food must be identified as to its nation of origin.

It would be nice if in the United States we had a representative government. What a joke.
