"All Natural" Food Can Mean Anything

The FDA does not, apparently, precisely define what the term "All Natural" means when used on the labels of food products, according to this 2 minute story from the NBC Nightly News last night. I found that revelation interesting in and of itself, and reminiscent of another fight a few years ago over the use of the similarly ill-defined term "Light" on food packaging.  But if you watch this segment you'll also hear that this issue has become public now not because of the actions of any consumer watchdog organization, but because of a lawsuit filed by the 'sugar industry' against makers of 'high fructose corn syrup.'
