"Faking It" Now Acceptable: US Gov't

The Food and Drug Administration has decided to allow Alaska surimi producers to drop the word "imitation" from their labels.

Surimi comes from pollock, which is formed and flavored to imitate crab, lobster and other seafood. The decision allows surimi producers to use the term "flavored" seafood instead of "imitation." The lobster industry says the labeling will confuse consumers....

What a waste of air-time : it's not like people who eat crab and lobster can tell the difference between a Big Mac and a Whopper.
