Cardoza wants flag on American products

California Rep. Dennis Cardoza, D-Merced, wants U.S.-grown ag products to bear an image of the American flag. He introduced a resolution this week urging domestic producers and packagers to print the flag on all labels.

“Given our ongoing work to pull back from the recession, I believe it is extremely important that we raise awareness and consciousness about products produced in the greatest country in the world," Cardoza said in a statement. "I believe this to be especially true in the San Joaquin Valley, where we grow some of America’s finest fruits, vegetables and nuts."
