DailyDirt: Printing Messages On Food

from the urls-we-dig-up dept

Food labeling can be a controversial topic when it comes to getting everyone to agree what information should be included with various foods. That said, technology that just enables printing information on food can lead to some fun (not just informative) innovations. Here are a few cool ways to get a message across via food.

    I think one should be told what it is they are paying for and possibly ingesting. Anything less is simply deception.

    Re: Re:

    That was a rather funny episode in trolling the public, maybe a few people learned from the experience but it is doubtful anyone was harmed by it. However, intentional deception of a paying customer is a different story. Food suppliers know that some potential customers are concerned, right or wrong, about certain ingredients and yet they refuse to disclose whether their products contain said ingredients. They do this in an attempt to protect their profits and some have even coerced the court system into blocking their competitors from claiming a lack of said ingredients. This goes well beyond humor and is subject to litigation, possibly criminal prosecution.
