FDA Exploring Preventative Controls to Address Pervasive Issue of Pentobarbital in Pet Foods

The FDA first became aware of the presence of pentobarbital, a barbituate used to euthanize animals and in human executions, in the late 1990s, but recent recalls of pet foods found to contain it from smaller manufacturers of purportedly high-end products to more mainstream products, including Gravy Train and Kibble n Bits, have forced it to conclude that it is a pervasive problem and not isolated incidents. There is zero tolerance level for pentobarbital in pet food. The FDA indicated that it is continuing to investigate the issue and is seeking to implement preventative controls through the Food Safety Modernization Act to stop the practice that puts pets and their owners who handle pet fo

California Fines Goop For Deceptive Products

Some Products Advertised as Wood May Not Be What You Think

Some furniture may look and sound like it’s made from real, solid "Walnut" or "Oak" wood, but it's made from manmade 100% Engineered Wood — MDF (short for medium density fiberboard) and painted "walnut" or "oak." Some consumers have to scroll to the fine print at the end of a website or may not see such a disclosure in a store where they purchase. Andersen Sleater Sianni represents consumers who have been deceived by false advertising. Click here to read more about wood products.

Groups Sue Missouri Over Non-Meat Law

A new Missouri law prohibits food companies from marketing products that are not "derived from harvested production livestock or poultry" as meat or face fines of up to $1,000 and spend up to a year in jail. The law would apply to meat substitutes such as soy-based, plant-based meat, which have become increasingly popular in recent years, and also "clean" meat, which is produced by growing and multiplying cells in a lab and is close to hitting the consumer market. The FDA and USDA are also studying labeling and health issues associated with lab grown meat. Parties including the American Civil Liberties Union of Missouri, the Animal Legal Defense Fund, the Good Food Institute and the compa

Companies Sued After Study Reveals Weed-Killer in Food Products

On the heels of a jury awarding a man $289 milliion after it was found that he got cancer from glyphosate, a widely used weed-killer, a study by the non-profit Environmental Working Group (EWG) revealed trace amounts of glyphosate in the products containing oats, granolas and snack bars. In fact, 31 out of 45 tested products had levels higher than what some scientists consider safe for children, including Quaker Old Fashioned Oats, Cheerios, Quaker Dinosaur Egg Instant Oats, Great Value Instant Oats, and Back to Nature Classic Granola. Some consumers have now taken action in bringing lawsuits against some companies under consumer protection laws for advertising these products as "wholesome"
