retail news in context, analysis with attitude

ABC News writes about new labeling rules from the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) that have gone into effect, requiring packages to have "two side-by-side columns: one with nutritional information for a single serving, and a second with information for eating the entire package."

The story notes that "manufacturers that yield less than $10 million in annual food sales will have until 2021 to comply with the new rules."

Other changes on the label, the story notes, include "enlarged and emboldened calorie information on the new labels" and a requirement "to disclose added sugars on labels."
KC's View:
In other words, if you want to eat an entire pint of ice cream in one sitting, the FDA wants you to know exactly what the impact will be.

Which is information I want to have. I think.
