Does this mean that McDonalds and Burger King will be required to show photos of horribly obese or diabetic infections on hamburger cartons and wrappers? March 24, 2012 6:50pm ET

No... But it SHOULD. It's amazing to me that the same organization that purports to be the watchdog and bastion of health and safety for food and drugs would require this, and then allow fast food chains to put plastics and addictive chemicals in their food with no notice whatsoever to the consumer. Or, better yet, to actively and aggressively restrict and prohibit the sale of all natural products in examples such as the raids on Amish farmers who sell milk and cheese.

The long and short of it is that you have to ask yourself who they're looking out for. I think you'll find that if you examine the question closely, you'll come to the determination that it most definitely isn't We, The People.
