The fresh produce industry in the U.S. has..
A. too little government regulation
B. too much government regulation
C. about the right amount of government regulation
Not to prejudice the results, but a Gallup poll, noted in Mish's Global Economic Trend Analysis, showed that 47% of Americans say there is too much government regulation rather than too little (26%).
These LinkedIn polls are open for a year, so I will be interested in the votes and comments over that period of time.
The industry's leading associations famously called for more government regulation in 2006 after foodborne outbreaks linked to E. coli on spinach and green onions. Several years past that point, and with the Food Safety Modernization Act on the books but far from implemented, what is the industry view today?
So I pose the question to readers. Does the industry in fact need more government regulation - or less?
