Also, I hope the "Vegan" label on products gets regulated here in the states. It doesn't make sense to me that a company will want to get the vegan market, but not take the time to figure out what it even means before launching a product. Either that, or they are purposely putting out non-vegan products hoping people won't read the ingredients, but that still doesn't make sense to me, because someone is going to read it eventually and they will be called on it.
Sadly, I don't expect we'll see it in this lifetime.
Any time there's massive variance in interpretation as to what different people consider "vegan", there's not going to be a standardized labeling system. Consider the varying degrees of other personal interpretations of where each of us draws the line, and you've got a recipe for disaster leading to potential litigation problems if things are not standardized, and you can see why it shouldn't be something we expect to see soon.
While I personally don't care if my chocolate is made in a factory that also produces dairy chocolate because I know not every company can set up a dedicated vegan facility due to costs and manpower issues, what about those whose personal interpretation of veganism (not the literal Donald Watson definition of veganism that is the ONLY "definition" on paper as of this time) tells them this isn't good enough and they consider it non-vegan (even if by such definition it is)? What about bone-char processed sugar, something that seems to be a 50/50 split from all the vegans I know where some are against it, some don't care because technically, the end product IS vegan? Already, this opens a whole set of problems, and nobody who isn't ready for a mass of headaches will touch creating a set definition for vegan products with a ten-foot-pole.
Unfortuntely, while the vegan community still draws new lines for where we each make our own definition of how far we go, it makes an impossible scenario to make everyone agree and allow for a standardized "rule" of what qualifies and what doesn't. I wish it were simpler, but after nearly 12 years in the vegan products game, I've come to realize what is likely to happen and what we'll probably never see. And, a standardized vegan label for products in the USA is one that will probably never happen.
