- May be illegal (criminal or civil), deviant, harmful, unjust, unethical, or immoral; intentional or unintentional consequences
- May threaten public health, safety, or well-being
- May involve issues of law-making (needed but does not exist) and law-breaking (laws do not prevent harms) associated with food production, processing, distribution, sale, and consumption
- May concern how laws and regulations are un-enforceable, lack effective enforcement, or fail to protect food, livestock animals, agricultural workers, consumers, and the natural environment more broadly; may be harmful issues that ought to be illegal
