business news in context, analysis with attitude

Back in 1993, the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) ruled that bread could not be called “fresh” because of certain preservatives, and instead could only be referred to as “freshly baked.”

Now, a decade later, the FDA is saying that it had been misreading the rules. Bread and other baked goods can be “fresh” after all.
KC's View:
If government can't get the bread baking rules right, you have to wonder how it’s doing on the big stuff.
