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?

That is true ... but, it is easier to adjust nutritional content due to cooking techniques when you have a baseline to start with.

I don’t have a problem with disclosure requirements for companies that sell food — but, those requirements have limits. The company cannot be expected to disclose information for alterations made after the sale (i.e. frying raw chicken), but I find nothing conceptually wrong with requiring disclosure of the content at the time of sale.
