The government ruins absolutely everything. Even cute, independent bakery ingredient lists.

A Massachusetts bakery dinged by the FDA for a litany of ridiculous infractions was most shocked to find they’d been reprimanded for citing “love” as an ingredient in their rolled oats.

Beef Products Inc. (BPI) has reached a settlement agreement with ABC News.

The beef company sued ABC and reporter Jim Avila for defamation after the network aired an investigative segment in 2012 calling a filler product used in ground beef “pink slime.” The complaint alleged omission of facts in addition to food-libel.

In 2012, ABC News aired a report that FDA whistleblowers were sounding the alarm over the contents of much ground beef for sale in America.  According to the ABC News report, a “processed meat product” is treated with small amounts of ammonia and used as filler in the nation’s FDA-approved...

Last summer, I reported that Food and Drug Administration rules covering e-cigarettes and adopted early in the Obama presidency were killing the related American industry.

The manufacturer, distribution and retail sales of e-cigarettes (which vaporizes nicotine-infused solutions that have only traces of some of the 60-plus carcinogens found in cigarette smoke), is...

About a week ago, I noted that new Food and Drug Administration regulations were snuffing out e-cigarette firms.

Now the FDA is going to save us from our hand soaps:

The Food and Drug Administration has issued a final rule that throws water on claims that antibacterial soaps and washes are more effective...

A recent report analyzing the regulatory climate under the Obama Administration shows that it is a lush and healthy environment… for bureaucrats.

A recent report by Sam Batkins of the American Action Forum brings the regulatory overreach of the Obama administration into focus. In nearly eight years, the Obama administration has issued 600 major...

Some intriguing news has been reported that gives me hope that our bureaucrats are taking the public health threat related to the Zika virus seriously.

As you may recall, the last time I reported on the Zika epidemic, 4 Floridians had developed locally-acquired infections (probably from mosquito bites). Now, there are 16...

The same monstrous federal agency that brought us food pyramids, plate graphics, and encourages America to eat vegan is after health food bar maker, KIND.

Recently, KIND received a love letter from the FDA citing multiple labeling violations. “However, none of your products listed above meet the requirements for use of the...

If the FDA’s overreach into cheese doesn’t compel you to grab your pitchfork and take to the streets, nothing will. Last week, we wrote about the FDA’s French cheese tyranny. Looks like the situation is only becoming more dire.

According to The Gazette, a cheese factory that specializes in cheese curds is...

Is there anything the government doesn’t ruin?

I had the pleasure of living in France for some time. While there, I gained an appreciation for their amazing array of cheeses. So vast is their cheese spread that Charles de Gaulle is famously quoted as saying, “Comment voulez-vous gouverner un pays qui a...
