Breaking Laws for Food

Breaking Laws for Food

Good food is often worth the time, effort or money required to produce it, but in these cases, people have gone above and beyond (and turned to the illegal) in their food related pursuits. We are passionate about all things food, but following these examples is not recommended:

• Shady Lion Meat: While pork may have lost its title as the other white meat, it may get replaced by lion meat, which is, apparently, a chewier, $60 per pound, version of pork. Want to try some? Head over to Exotic Meat Market or to Savenor’s Market in Cambridge, MA. The issue lies in the fact that each place says that their source is in Illinois. The largest supplier of lion meat in Illinois and the US has been charged with mislabeling meat from endangered species as meat that can be legally killed and sold.

• Truck Disappeared with $400,000 of King Crab: A truck carrying 25,000 pounds of Russian King Crab has gone missing while driving from a cold storage warehouse in Los Angeles to Seattle. Once the truck failed to make its delivery, the trucking company found that the driver used false documents to get hired and is part of an entire fraud ring.

• Naomi Campbell vs. Cadbury: Naomi Campbell may sue Cadbury after the company ran and originally refused to pull an advertisement for its Dairy Milk Bliss bar that read, “Move over Naomi, there’s a new diva in town. I’m the world’s most pampered bar.” While the ad is no longer in circulation and Cadbury claims the ad was meant to be light-hearted, Campbell is not amused.

• Chinese Establish Death Penalty for Food Safety Crimes: Recent reports of unsafe food have created widespread public anger in China. On Friday, the top court issued a notice establishing the death penalty for food safety crimes that lead to fatalities.

• Man Fined $1,000 for Transporting 385 pounds of Bologna: To prevent the possibility of introducing foreign animal diseases to the US pork industry, it is illegal to bring bologna across the border. After he was stopped at the port of entry to Saint Teresa, police have fined a man $1,000 after finding 385 pounds of Mexican bologna in the back of his truck

• Victim Left in Coma After Visit to a Bar: After having a few drinks at O’Brien’s Irish Pub and Restaurant in Santa Monica earlier this month, a man remains in critical condition. When leaving the establishment, the man bumped into another female patron, was consequently pushed several times by her friend and got knocked down onto the pavement where he struck his head.

• Red Bull Doesn’t Actually Give You Wings: Early Monday afternoon, a man stole five cases of Red Bull from a Boston area supermarket and attempted to flea. The resulting chase remained within the speed limit, so no speeding ticket, but William Gardner is being charged with failing to stop for police, reckless driving, resisting arrest and larceny.

Ivanka Trump Posts Cheeky Instagram With a Can of Goya Beans & the Internet Is Not Having It

It’s no surprise that the Trump family doesn’t place much value on things like ethics, morality or even basic human decency, but Ivanka Trump’s latest gaffe was a new low, even for her. In case you missed it last week, Goya Foods CEO Robert Unanue boldly praised President Trump during a trip to the White House and #BoycottGoya quickly took off on Twitter. Even celebrities like Chrissy Teigen voiced their displeasure for Unanue’s remarks. Goya Foods, the largest, Hispanic-owned food company in the United States siding with a man who has a has been known to call Mexican immigrants rapists obviously didn’t sit well with a lot of people.

Fast-forward a few days and Twitter is once again in an uproar, but this time, it’s because Ivanka Trump posted a less-than-ethical image to Instagram.

The first daughter captioned the photo “ If it&rsquos Goya, it has to be good. Si es Goya, tiene que ser bueno.”

Ivanka Trump clearly posted the photo in response to the Goya boycotts, but as a senior advisor to the White House, people are wondering if she may have violated a federal ethics rule by promoting the product on her social media account. According to The United States Office of Government Ethics, “Executive branch employees may not use their Government positions to suggest that the agency or any part of the executive branch endorses an organization (including a nonprofit organization), product, service, or person.” It seems like Trump’s Goya endorsement is a pretty clear violation of that rule. Could there be any legal repercussions? Only time will tell.

Twitter had a lot to say about the post.

Why is a senior White House official endorsing a food product?

&mdash Kyle Griffin (@kylegriffin1) July 15, 2020

If it's Ivanka, it has to be vapid, feckless, insincere, and complicit. You never even held a can of Goya before your racist dad #RecklessTrump decided he needed a distraction.

Stop worrying about the Goya.

You do know you just violated the law, don't you? And that the statute of limitations just started running today? And the next president will be in office in less than a year? And that if it's not your dad, real prosecutors will enforce the law and fine you?

But perhaps our favorite response of all comes from Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez:

This Twitter user offered a great piece of advice to anyone who wants to voice their concern about this unethical endorsement.

Any U.S. citizens concerned with federal ethics code violations such as these should call the U.S. Inspector General at (202) 514-3435.

Relevant ethics code here is 5 CFR secion 2635.702

Just to be safe, call them again tomorrow. And again the next day.

Ivanka Trump Posts Cheeky Instagram With a Can of Goya Beans & the Internet Is Not Having It

It’s no surprise that the Trump family doesn’t place much value on things like ethics, morality or even basic human decency, but Ivanka Trump’s latest gaffe was a new low, even for her. In case you missed it last week, Goya Foods CEO Robert Unanue boldly praised President Trump during a trip to the White House and #BoycottGoya quickly took off on Twitter. Even celebrities like Chrissy Teigen voiced their displeasure for Unanue’s remarks. Goya Foods, the largest, Hispanic-owned food company in the United States siding with a man who has a has been known to call Mexican immigrants rapists obviously didn’t sit well with a lot of people.

Fast-forward a few days and Twitter is once again in an uproar, but this time, it’s because Ivanka Trump posted a less-than-ethical image to Instagram.

The first daughter captioned the photo “ If it&rsquos Goya, it has to be good. Si es Goya, tiene que ser bueno.”

Ivanka Trump clearly posted the photo in response to the Goya boycotts, but as a senior advisor to the White House, people are wondering if she may have violated a federal ethics rule by promoting the product on her social media account. According to The United States Office of Government Ethics, “Executive branch employees may not use their Government positions to suggest that the agency or any part of the executive branch endorses an organization (including a nonprofit organization), product, service, or person.” It seems like Trump’s Goya endorsement is a pretty clear violation of that rule. Could there be any legal repercussions? Only time will tell.

Twitter had a lot to say about the post.

Why is a senior White House official endorsing a food product?

If it's Ivanka, it has to be vapid, feckless, insincere, and complicit. You never even held a can of Goya before your racist dad #RecklessTrump decided he needed a distraction.

Stop worrying about the Goya.

You do know you just violated the law, don't you? And that the statute of limitations just started running today? And the next president will be in office in less than a year? And that if it's not your dad, real prosecutors will enforce the law and fine you?

But perhaps our favorite response of all comes from Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez:

This Twitter user offered a great piece of advice to anyone who wants to voice their concern about this unethical endorsement.

Any U.S. citizens concerned with federal ethics code violations such as these should call the U.S. Inspector General at (202) 514-3435.

Relevant ethics code here is 5 CFR secion 2635.702

Just to be safe, call them again tomorrow. And again the next day.
