Food Industry Requests More Regulation

In an interesting twist major US food corporations are asking for increased regulations.

Food Makers Get Appetite for Regulation (WSJ)

The News: The food industry is seeking more government regulation on safety measures.
The Alternative: Without a uniform standard, companies face a web of rules and audits from states and customers.
The Bottom Line: Some calls for rules on imports may be protectionist. But they underscore the challenges of U.S. companies as they seek to ensure the safety of products sourced from around the world.
I've searched but couldn't find any union position on the matter. Union's have ceded space to corporations over the years to the point where they no longer have a major voice in industry regulation/lobbying.
