Food dating system

(John Woike / Hartford Courant) NEWINGTON — New federal food labeling standards to let consumers know how long food can actually be safely eaten would save billions of dollars in usable food that's now being thrown away, said a panel of experts who gathered at a Stew Leonard's store on Thursday. Richard Blumenthal's new legislation aimed at establishing a uniform federal food dating system.

Food bank officials, environmentalists, academics and food industry representatives met to support U. Blumenthal said the current hodgepodge of state laws and regulations on food dating has created confusing labels "that fail to reflect what consumers think they mean." Legislation similar to the bill Blumenthal is proposing has already been submitted in the U. House, and he said both measures face an "uphill fight" in an often-gridlocked Congress despite expected food industry support. Senator Richard Blumenthal (D-Conn.) will announce new legislation to reform and streamline confusing and misleading food date labels that contribute to the waste of 160 billions of pounds of food each year, driving up consumer costs and filling landfills with perfectly edible food.

Most bakery and pharmacy related food items are "sell by" or "best by" dated, which is easy for you and I to understand.
