The DC Mind, Part 34,000

You think we're kidding about the "DC Mind," eh?

Because Diamond Foods made truthful claims about the health benefits of consuming walnuts that the FDA didn’t approve, it sent the company a letter declaring, “Your walnut products are drugs” — and “new drugs” at that — and, therefore, “they may not legally be marketed … in the United States without an approved new drug application.” The agency even threatened Diamond with “seizure” if it failed to comply. --New American quoted at MoonBattery

PissyPants: the most important component of the DC Mind!

With everything going on, it's comforting to know Congress critters have time to pressure the FDA on behalf of Big Pharma over something as trivial as this.
