While FDA Commissioner, Dr. Margaret Hamburg, said the department hopes for “voluntary reductions,” a former FDA commissioner is called for a “mandatory standard.”

Hamburg assures the Associated Press that reductions won’t be sudden, but anyone smacking their lips for a big ballpark pretzel might soon be shedding a few salty tears.

In case the near future promises to be filled with bland potato shavings and tofurkey bacon, The Daily Caller would like to take a minute to salivate over the finer-grain things in life.
