Label all chemicals and ingredients in food

Dairy products with hormones,#1 meat with antibiotics,#2 almonds with propylene oxide,#3 cans lined with Bisphenol A,#4 chicken fed arsenic,#5 beef treated with carbon monoxide,#6 and a myriad of other chemical processes and ingredients. Tell the FDA to develop labeling rules that would require all foods to be labeled with any chemical added or found in the product due to the way it is manufactured. People have a right to know if they are eating hormones, arsenic, propylene oxide, or any other chemicals. Additionally, many food colorings are made from insect products that are labeled "natural coloring" or natural "flavoring."#7 The FDA should require all food products to list accurately all ingredients and chemicals that are found due to processing or packaging. People have a right to know.
