Phony Health, Ingredient Claims “Defraud” Consumers, CSPI Charges

December 29, 2009: 02:36 AM EST
Despite an increase in the number of warning letters sent by the FDA, the Center for Science in the Public Interest still sees a slew of “false claims, ingredient obfuscations, and other (food) labeling shenanigans” by many big food companies. On one of its cereals Kellogg, for example, “deliberately misreads” an Institute of Medicine report to say that consumers can eat more than four ounces of added sugar a day. Calling for federal reforms, the consumer watchdog says food companies “continue to confuse or defraud consumers about the health effects, ingredients, or ‘natural’-ness of their products.”
