USDA reclassifies frozen french fries as fresh vegetables
South Florida Sun-Sentinel |
"Based on a little-noticed change to obscure federal rules, the USDA defines frozen french fries as 'fresh vegetables.' As bizarre as it may sound, a federal judge in Texas last week endorsed the USDA's rules in a court case, saying the term 'fresh vegetables' was ambiguous. The USDA quietly changed the regulations last year at the behest of the french fry industry... The french fry rule calls to mind the USDA's attempt in 1981 to classify ketchup and pickle relish as vegetables, an idea that was dropped amid public protests."
