Misleading Food Labels
Misleading Food Labels in the Marketplace
Today, more than ever, people are increasingly concerned about the ingredients and nutritional value of the food they eat. Along with consumers’ increasing awareness about what they put in their bodies, however, comes the temptation for advertisers to use misleading or deceptive food labels to sell their products. Some of the more common misleading labels include:
- misleading organic labels
- misleading “all natural” labels
- false “preservative free” labels
- labels extolling false health claims
- false “raised without antibiotics” claims
What You Can Do About A Deceptive Food Label
There are a number of laws that bar the use of misleading labels, including the Consumer Legal Remedies Act (CLRA) and the Fair Packaging and Labeling Act (FPLA). These laws can be used in false advertising lawsuits in an effort to limit the use of misleading labels in the marketplace.
