"JUST EAT IT" Documentary Labeling Information


A message from Alan Northcutt:


We wish to provide follow-up information to clarify some questions that arose at the January 16 meeting.

After studying the USDA website I arrived at 2 conclusions that basically conform to our thoughts Tuesday night:
  1. The only labeling required by federal law in the US is for baby formula. 
  2. Examination of food for changes in odor, color, texture and taste is the best method of determining if a given food   item is safe.

The USDA web page does provide more detail and helpful information on interpreting specialized labeling, as for eggs.  Please check out this link for these details:

We all love food. As a society, we devour countless cooking shows, culinary magazines and foodie blogs. So how could we possibly be throwing nearly 50% of it in the trash?


Filmmakers and food lovers Jen and Grant dive into the issue of waste from farm, through retail, all the way to the back of their own fridge.  Just Eat It brings farmers, retailers, inspiring organizations, and consumers to the table in a cinematic story that is equal parts education and delicious entertainment.
