Are food labels telling the whole truth? With the number of buzz words cluttering labels on products lately, it’s easy to feel disenchanted browsing the aisles of even the best grocers. This week on Eating Matters, host Kim Kessler and co-producer Jenna Liut are on the line with Stephen Gardner and Diana Winters in an effort to demystify food labels, some of which that have even spurred lawsuits. Stephen heads the food law practice at the Stanley Law Group of Dallas, Texas while Diana is a Professor of Law at Indiana University Robert H. McKinney School of Law. Tune in for a great discussion!
“There’s been some indications that companies are moving away from using the word ‘natural’ because it is seen as a litigation magnet… but companies are moving to other words like using ‘fresh’ instead of ‘natural.'” [15:40]

“I find it hilarious for companies to complain that it’s just a bunch of lawyers trying to make money when they’re being sued over their lying to people in order to make money!” [19:50]
