Under the Canadian agreement, for example, new feta products manufactured in Canada can only be marketed as feta-like or feta-style, and they can’t use Greek letters or other symbols that evoke Greece.-Say bye bye to parmesan, muenster and feta: Europe wants its cheese backOh, so now you have to pretend, based on the State's lies, that it isn't really "feta", but only "feta-like". And you can't use Greek letters??? Fuck that shit! The only argument that would make sense was if protecting the consumer who is so stupid as to think something was produced in Greece when it was obviously not is your top priority, but people that stupid are few, and don't deserve "protection" anyway. The companies making these cheese products would only be guilty of fraud if they were deliberately deceiving consumers into believing their cheese was imported when is wasn't. None of them are doing any such thing. If I have a cheese labeled "Parmesan" that clearly states on the label that it's a "product of USA", then case closed, statist raving lunatics, there is no crime, there is no wrong, and you can take your ban and shove it up your nasty fucking European ass! God, I fucking hate Europe!

Don't Say Parmesan, Say Cheese
Posted by Nick
So the asswipes of the European Union want to ban American made cheese from carrying "European" names. What utter bullshit! The first part of this nonsense is that something labeled "Parmesan" has to come from only one place, Parma, Italy. Well, fuck Parma, Italy! Anyone who wants a monopoly on a type of product to stifle competition (and that's what this rotten, evil proposal from the socialistic, statist E.U. is, make no mistake about it) can go straight to Hell! The lie of this "place of origin" crap is exposed by its extension. The ban would include, apparently, all "European" cheeses, even if there is no specific place with the name of that variety of cheese, for instance, feta, though there is no "Feta", Greece. But get this, the assholes of the E. fucking U. (that's Europe fucking you Americans, folks) "argue" that feta "“is so closely connected to Greece as to be identified as an inherently Greek product." Hmm, so what about "Greek" yogurt, or spaghetti (why limit this to cheese), Should American made pasta not be allowed to use the name "spaghetti" since spaghetti originated in Italy? What nonsense! United States dairy producers are rightly fighting this attempt to destroy their business, but Canadians aren't so lucky, as their Super Nanny State has already caved:
