There is probably more false labeling or false advertising involving national brand name food products than all other categories combined. Our false labeling or false advertising of specific food products is focused on national brands. The consumer must still have the product, a receipt for the purchase and if possible any advertising or promotional material.
What Types of Products Qualify:
- Any food product that is advertised, or labeled as organic, and as it turns out the product is not organic.
“What is organic food? Organic food is produced by farmers who emphasize the use of renewable resources and the conservation of soil and water to enhance environmental quality for future generations. Organic meat, poultry, eggs, and dairy products come from animals that are given no antibiotics or growth hormones. Organic food is produced without using most conventional pesticides; fertilizers made with synthetic ingredients or sewage sludge; bioengineering; or ionizing radiation. Before a product can be labeled ‘organic,’ a Government-approved certifier inspects the farm where the food is grown to make sure the farmer is following all the rules necessary to meet USDA organic standards. Companies that handle or process organic food before it gets to your local supermarket or restaurant must be certified, too.” Consumer Brochure, USDA National Organic Program, http://www.ams.usda.gov/nop/Consumers/brochure.html
- Any type of fruit drink, or health drink that claims to be 100% of the fruit, that is not truthful.
- Any type of food product that claims to be made in the USA, or produced in the USA when it was not. False advertising is false advertising.
Attention major grocery chain store employees-if you know your store is advertising food, produce, or meat products as made in the USA, or organic and it is not true, please call us, and tell us your story.
We want to hear from all victims provided we are talking about national brand, the product was clearly advertised in a false, or misleading way, and most importantly the consumer possesses promotional material for the product, the actual advertisement, or a label that is clearly false, or extremely misleading.
