Recently the EU Parliament passed a motion requiring origin food labeling. Within this motion there is a special provision for those individuals who choose not to consume any animal products. Specifically, this provision asserts that meat and its derivatives should never be mistakenly labeled as vegetarian.
The legislation continues by stating that the term vegetarian “should not be applied to foods that are, or are made from or with the aid of products derived from animals that have died or been slaughtered.” And the term vegan “should not be applied to foods that are. Or are made from or with the aid of, animals or animal products.”
Please sign this petition urging that American politicians pass the same legislation. Every American consumer should have the right to know what s/he is purchasing and eating.
