False Advertising & Deceptive Food Labeling

Accurate food and product labels are essential to consumer safety and well-being. Consumers rely on that information when deciding whether to buy a product, and they must be able to trust that the information is correct. State and federal laws prohibit companies from using false or misleading statements on their labels.

If you bought a product with a misleading label, you may be able to recover money through a class action lawsuit. Contact our consumer attorneys to assess your potential claim.

  • "Made with organic ingredients".
  • "Preservative-free".

False advertising is not limited to labels, though. Other common forms of false advertising include:
