FDA Cracking Down

13 May

Once in a while the FDA catches deceitful claims made by food manufactures.  But for every slap on the hand by the FDA, dozens of other product makers use sleight of hand techniques and carefully constructed language to lead consumers to a single conclusion: this product is magic!  Caveat emptor.  

Or do you have a sense that a love relationship was established between the FDA and the pharmaceutical industry, which forged the agency’s rule that no food maker can claim similar effects claimed by big-business drug companies?

I’m just saying.

    assuming you referring to the Cheerios ‘bust’. It is interesting to consider the relationship between the FDA and the pharmaceutical industry. However, the food lobby is among the biggest in Washington – how interesting it would be to see these 2 industries actually overseen and regulated by a government agency developed to encourage health.
