1 at long last food labeling laws on Tue Sep 30, 2008 6:54 pm



Walk into a grocery store after Sept. 30, and you’ll be more likely to find out whether that head of lettuce you are buying was grown in Mexico or the United States. If you pick up a bag of lettuce, however, don’t necessarily expect the same information.

After years of wrangling, so-called “country of origin labeling” is expected to take effect at the end of the month, requiring most food retailers to disclose where many types of meat, produce and other food products come from. The new rules aim to make it easier for regular consumers to know whether their food was imported or not, much like they can find out whether the toys they buy for their children were made domestically or overseas.
