Trump Administration To Classify Canned Spray Cheese As “Staple Dairy Food” In Federal Food Stamps Rules

It’s Reagan and ketchup all over again.

Bloomberg reports:

Canned spray cheese, beef jerky, and pimiento-stuffed olives would count as staple foods under the Trump administration’s proposed rule for the federal food-stamp program.

The rule reportedly revises the program’s “minimum stocking requirements” for food staples, which stores are required to meet in order to accept the food-stamp benefits.

The Federal Register notice states “canned spray cheese sauce” would count as a dairy staple, lemon juice and “jarred pimiento-stuffed olives” as fruit and vegetables staples, and “beef jerky” as a meat staple.
