California's Boxer says chicken labels should disclose saline 'plumping'

California Sen. Barbara Boxer and poultry producers on Wednesday called for stricter labeling so that consumers know when their chicken is stuffed with salt water. About 30 percent of the poultry sold nationwide is injected with saline solution, in a process called "plumping." Currently, the Agriculture Department allows this plumped-up poultry to be labeled as "all natural."
