Government Bureaucratic Insanity

The federal government has told a Maryland dairy farmer he will be fined and could be closed down if he doesn’t agree to its redefinition of his very real skim milk as “imitation skim milk.”

The couple wants to sell to consumers skim milk, meaning, as has been understood for centuries, milk with the cream skimmed off.

But the U.S. Food and Drug Administration has decided that it can only be called “skim milk” if he adds chemicals.

“If farmers want to sell pasteurized, all-natural skim milk without added chemicals, the federal government forces them to lie to customers by labeling it as ‘imitation skim milk’ or ‘imitation milk product,’” the organization reported.
