Behind the Lines (February 2008)

The inspiration for this month’s cover story on food labelling came last year when a supermarket meat counter attendant directed Better Farming senior staff editor Don Stoneman’s attention towards a “special” just in time for the end of the barbecuing season. It was a steak labelled “Product of Canada” but bearing an inspection logo from the United States Department of Agriculture. Since Canada hasn’t quite been declared the 51st state yet, he started on an odyssey to find out what gives.
