I think that "united states" is probably warranted for the third question: prices of fast-food, fresh produce and TV dinners vary a lot by country. It can't be a non-geographical question, just like the food desert question.

I agree with you re: the other two questions.


I concur with your interpretation of the tag. You make an excellent case for each of the three being inappropriate.

(The second one uses some US data to ask the question, but that doesn't make the issue US specific.)

So I went and removed the tag from each of them. Hopefully, the problem is solved, but we should keep an eye out in case others make the same mistake.

Thank you for your eagle eyes!
