Okay, I’m not a fan of milk and don’t consume any dairy products but I think this is ridiculous:
Milk isn’t for everyone, according to a new lawsuit demanding that each and every carton sold in Washington carry a warning label for people who are unable to tolerate it.
Filed yesterday in D.C. Superior Court by an organization that promotes vegetarian diets, the suit charges that Giant, Safeway and other milk retailers have failed to warn lactose-intolerant consumers of the risks of drinking milk. (Washington Post)
That’s right, because people who are lactose intolerant need labels to tell them that they shouldn’t drink milk! Isn’t the message here that Americans are so dumb they need everything labelled for them like children?
