Breyers added additives to their ice cream to cut costs, Therefore, Canada determined their product no longer contained enough milk and cream to meet labeling requirements for ice cream. Do you support increased regulation for food companies?

  • Knowledge is power.

    I do think that Canada had the right to do this. We should be able to eat whatever we want, but we also deserve to know what we are putting in our bodies and buying for our families. I like increased regulation since it makes it easier to know what you are purchasing.

  • Yes, people deserve to know what it is they are consuming.

    In order for the free market to function, people have a right to know what they are putting into their bodies. It's sad that it comes down to requiring more regulation in order to provide this, but if food companies aren't going to be forthright about the products that they are selling then it's just what has to happen.

  • Yes, food companies often cut corners to the detriment of quality and safety.

    Food companies should be subjected to increased regulations, because it has been shown that without those regulations, they will cut corners to the detriment of consumers' health and safety. For example, the government allows a certain percentage of bug parts to be present in chocolate; without that rule, it is doubtful that chocolate companies would try to control quality at all. Additionally, food poisoning runs rampant in countries lacking an FDA, such as Thailand and many third-world countries. Consumers have a right to know what they're eating in order to make informed decisions.
