General Assembly Resolution # 211
A resolution to repeal previously passed legislation.
General Assembly Resolution #149 “On Expiration Dates” (Category: Social Justice; Strength: Mild) shall be struck out and rendered null and void.
The General Assembly,
COMMENDING General Assembly Resolution #149, On Expiration Dates, for seeking to ensure safety among consumers of perishable goods;
DISAPPOINTED, however, that GAR#149 states, in relevant part:
CHARGES any distributor of any necessity to attain an accurate and average prediction of how long each and every necessity that they distribute will last until it degrades to a level of quality at which it will directly "lead to the deprivation of any sort of bodily activity that is required for the extension of [one's] lifetime;"
NOTING that the resolution in question is flawed, inasmuch as it only requires that products display how long such a product lasts on average before spoiling, while failing to require the above said items to display the date in which the product was manufactured;
REGRETTING that such a loophole renders the entirety of the resolution useless, and even detrimental, as it allows manufacturers, distributors, and retailers to deceive consumers as to when the product is to expire;
FURTHER NOTING that GAR#149 requires all items, regardless of whether an expiration date is necessary or practical, to display such labels on the products;
BELIEVING the aforementioned resolution to be irrevocably flawed;
REPEALS General Assembly Resolution #149 "On Expiration Dates."
