FDA wants nutrition facts on front of food packages

Should "Tony the Tiger" share the front of a Kellogg's Frosted Flakes cereal box with nutritional jargon? It's true that nutritional facts on food products are important to us. But do they really need to be on the front of all food packaging? Secretary of Health and Human Services (HHS) Kathleen Sebelius thinks they do. The U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) is developing new requirements for food manufacturers to print nutritional information on the front of packages, according to CNSNews.com. Sebelius believes busy shoppers will have quicker access to data, saving them the time of lifting the box from the shelf and flipping to the side or back panel. But food companies point out that it will be expensive to change packaging, especially for small and mid-sized companies. They also argue that since food nutrition is already provided on packaging, requiring an additional label on the front should not be mandatory. Currently, food manufacturers can put nutrition facts on any panel that can be seen by the consumer. The FDA also wants to ban "self-labeling" by food manufacturers. That means if a manufacturer wants to use the term "healthy" on packaging, scientific evidence will be required to back that… (continue reading......)

Tis the season for umbrella insurance

If any insurance could possibly be regarded as holiday insurance, it's umbrella coverage. Umbrella coverage provides an extra layer of liability protection on top of the liability limits within your auto and home insurance policies. If you entertain at your home during the holidays, this is a wise investment.

If you're sued for injuries, your home insurance kicks in, and we all know how expensive hospital bills can be. Umbrella coverage would kick in if your home (or auto) insurance limits are exhausted. A typical umbrella policy amount is $1 million, and it could cost you a little over $100 a year, depending on your insurance company. (continue reading......)
