Los Angeles Misleading and Deceptive Product Labeling Attorneys
Consumers today are increasingly seeking to buy healthy products and to avoid artificial and harmful ingredients. This health-conscious trend has tempted some companies to use false or misleading labels to increase sales and to charge premium prices.
Deceptive labeling is especially widespread among food products, cosmetics, and personal care products. Consumers rely on product labels in choosing which products to buy and how much to pay for them. False or misleading labels can lead consumers to make purchasing decisions that they would not have made had they known the true facts.
Examples of Misleading Food and Personal Care Product Labels
Some of the more common types of false and misleading labeling include but are not limited to:
- Falsely labeling products that have artificial ingredients (such as artificial additives, chemical preservatives, synthetics, etc.) as “natural” or “no artificial ingredients”
- Falsely advertising products as “Preservative Free”
- Falsely advertising products as “organic”
- Overstating the amounts of nutrients or vitamins that the product contains
- Claiming false health benefits
- Otherwise misrepresenting the quality or quantity of ingredients (such as calling fructose an excellent substitute for sugar)
