    He doesn't go on his  animal rights rants like he used to, and using the horse meat issue to revisit Prop 37 was pretty weak tea.

      I think is quite appropriate to point that we are the weakest industrialize nation in food labeling. So bad that the milk industry thinks that putting sugar in milk can fly with no label cause other industries had bought the politicians for similar things before.

        Merely lumping things into broad categories according to how they make you feel doesn't make them equivalent, just like we don't keep the silver wear in the attic with Christmas decorations just because they are shiny.

        Sugar in milk on?

        Because according to the FDA's regulations, if one adds sugar to milk, it cannot even be called "milk."

          the claims concerning sugaring milk, however, the FDA only has jurisdiction on interstate products.  Dairy and eggs are predominately local and are under the jurisdiction of the state - state laws vary from state to state.
           If they are using only lactose sugar it might not be considered an adulterant - it could be considered "fortified"
