Urgent..RANT...FDA don't fuck with my vice!
I think I need to join a chocoholics pride movement...or start one!
This docket at FDA will likely affect other food products as well, and I am continually meeting more and more people with food sensitivities, allergies, or concerns.
So I kind of blew my chances at a career at the FDA as I sent this comment to them:
Not disclosing to consumers information regarding food ingredients and their substitutes, and/or imitation ingredients is quite potentially dangerous, unethical, and just a plain unsavory business practice. Give consumers an educated choice in their buying decisions. The labeling practices need more explicit and accurate labels as it is already. Do not dilute the truth. There are many people with food allergies and sensitivities. Not allowing them to know would endanger them. Allowing companies to put cheaper, more available ingredients will only compromise the quality of products.If you mess up my chocolate, may the masses of those that consume quality chocolate rise up against you, particularly whilst PMSing!
A friend sent this to me, stating that a decision will be made on the 25th.
So if you want to know what you are putting in your mouth(though I know many here do not care....such as sucking one's own man boobs ;P) This has link to FDA, with really crappy instructions on what the page WILL look like when you click to the link.
