Food labeling is a hotly contested area of the law and one that influences and impacts consumers' choices. Governmental intervention in food labeling at the state and federal level typically aims at improving human health and safety, supporting domestic agricultural and food manufacturing industries, and averting international trade disputes. Food labels seem to be so helpful, so how do you navigate all the legal issues?
