Agreed. I don’t have a problem with requiring companies to disclose the content of food products. This isn’t really policing the content of food ... it is allowing the consumer to police his own diet if he so chooses.

The labels would make more sense for folks who eat their meat raw. Once cooked, some of the nutritional characteristics change. Fry chicken with a yummy batter and I'll just bet it has more fat and calories than if cooked differently. Fry a low fat hamburger and toss it into a bun with some cheese and that changes things too.
When, oh when, will the government enlighten us silly peons as to these important matters?

I’d rather know what they are putting in the chicken at the Tyson Plant that advertises DEATH TO AMERICANS in their restrooms. Oprah & PETA has educated us all, whether we wanted it or not, on the evils of eating meat, fish, pork, or anything else that moves.
