We are looking to purchase food grade mineral oil.  We have found mineral oil sold as a laxitive, so does that mean it is food grade or must it state food grade on its label?    Thanks in advance.

The Laxitive is is actually a grade ABOVE food grade.  It's USP.  It exceeds the requirements for food grade.

.....The greatest changes occur in their country without their cooperation. They are not even aware of precisely what has taken place. They suspect it; they have heard of the event by chance. More than that, they are unconcerned with the fortunes of their village, the safety of their streets, the fate of their church and its vestry. They think that such things have nothing to do with them, that they belong to a powerful stranger called “the government.” They enjoy these goods as tenants, without a sense of ownership, and never give a thought to how they might be improved.....
