USDA Releases "Fresh" Guidelines

Due to the large amount of food that is wasted daily by most Americans, the USDA has developed a fresh set of guidelines that will prevent this issue from recurring.

Sasha Stashwick, a representative of the the National Resource Defense Council stated, "9 of 10 shoppers are confused by the dates that are labeled on the product."

To lower the confusion; USDA has now required that the "best if used by" label be the only label used by meat, dairy, and egg manufacturers.
