How much can it cost to weigh and label?

Wouldn't you want what you bought weighed and labeled?

China's New Meat Labeling Regulations Could be Costly for U.S. Pork Exporters

China's new meat labeling requirements will become effective June 1 and are expected to be problematic for U.S. pork exporters, according to an article in the Appleton Post Crescent. The new requirements may decrease pork trade with China because the cost of compliance may deter U.S. processors. China's requirement that exporters weigh and label individual packages of pork is expected to add the most cost for U.S. exporters. Even though China imports high volumes of U.S. pork, most products are lower in value with low profit margins. The U.S. Meat Export Federation has been working to help reach a compromise between U.S. and Chinese trade officials, but have not met with much success.

Well, it looks like the Meat Export Federation is on the job.

Maybe the Meat Export Federation can hire that Weiner Congressman and sell them packaged hot dogs. I know they already know how to print the weight of hot dogs on the package.

Isn't this amazing? The MEF is trying to compromise something that is a no-brainer to start with?

Well they can't cut the wages of those illegals and the salaried personnel don't want to take a pay cut. What a dilemma! Oh well someone somewhere will pay. :wink:
