senate Bill S. 2322

Should the Gov’t Define What ‘Natural’ Cheese Is?

Argument in favor

Consumers need accurate information about the food products they’re buying in grocery stores. Currently, the lack of definition for “natural cheese product” makes it difficult for consumers to know whether the cheese they’re buying is, in fact, real cheese made with established cheese-making practices.

It’s the USDA Responsibility To Keep Consumers Informed. Consumers need accurate information about the food products they’re buying in grocery stores.

After we define “natural,” advertisers will use a new word.

YES, a true, unadulterated definition of natural cheese IS VERY IMPORTANT to protect consumers from “processed cheese products” masquerading as cheese. The INTEGRITY of our foods is important for health!

Argument opposed

This bill is a giveaway to the dairy industry that’ll create more, not less, consumer confusion. Its definition of “natural” doesn’t adhere to most consumers’ assumptions about what a “natural” product is, and will lead to consumers buying “natural cheese” that doesn’t align with what they believe they’re getting.

I’m sure the market can sort out the cheeses just fine without government involvement.

I don’t recall anything in the Constitution regarding power granted to the Federal Government to define cheese

    More Government corruption in favor of an unethical industry. The leaders of the dairy industry are realizing that all of the “tobacco marketing” is starting to give way to real science and scientific studies, and dairy products are not looking so healthy anymore. As Republicans, we want Government to stay out of our corrupt business practices, but we want Government to step in and tell other competitors what they can do with their businesses and we will take all the Government entitlements and keep taking. We will also dump our milk to raise prices and we will inject our livestock full of chemicals that make them sick, but make us really wealthy. We do not care about Consumers, only their dollars.

    How about they define the American official language instead of defining Natural Cheese.

    We don’t need the government to regulate every single thing we do every day of our lives and everything we encounter in life. Just another way to add more taxes.

    Actually yes. First off non-pasteurized cheeses can be dangerous to an unborn baby. Secondly these things called “cheese food” or “cheese product” have all kinds of stuff like vegetable oil and worse in them and little to no actual dairy. There are good reasons to know the difference and have it on the label accordingly.

    We are lied to about the content of products, and anything seeking to clarify that is a good thing.
