In the video that I watched, it shows how we are extremely wasteful with our food, for example, milk. Milk is constantly being thrown away due to people looking the expiration date and assuming that the milk is no longer good when it could actually be used for another 21-24 days. This is because there is no federal law regulating when food expires so states can make any law that fits their standards. This is the main reason why food is constantly being thrown away wasting people’s time for preparing it and the lives of animals. I agree with the statement that the research group made when they said that there needs to be a federal law regulating expiration dates. The longer this keeps on going, the more food waste there will be.
