How Do I Deceive Thee?...Let Us Count The Ways.

The Center for Science in the Public Interest has recently released a report detailing the many ways in which food labels are misleading. It is no surprise to us, but it is interesting to note some of the problems they describe.

Their solution: change the labels. Make food manufacturers tell the truth about what's in the food products you are buying, and stop them from making bogus or exaggerated claims about health benefits of the products. Sounds simple. I hope the FDA is listening.

To read their full report on the problems with food labels, click here.

We are currently investigating claims against several of the companies mentioned in this report: Gerber Natural Juice Treats, Minute Maid's Cranberry Apple Cocktail, among others.

If you have purchased one of these products, or other products, and believe the product was falsely advertised, give me a call. I'd love to hear your story.
