And thanks to those very same regulations, not a single instance of undercooked or contaminated food has ever reached the public... because those evil companies are too stupid & greedy to know that selling their customers rat meat will be A-OK if they ever find out.

If you choose to live in a world where you find out about tainted food products during the autopsy, that's your prerogative.  The rest of us choose otherwise. 

Further, without laws and regulation, the bad actors simply move on to another company and repeat the process...they weren't doing anything illegal, right?
