Tropikana "tabiiy" da'volar ustidan sinf harakatlariga qaraydi

Tropikana

PepsiCo brendi, mahsulotni "tabiiy" deb da'vo qilgani uchun, mahsulotni etiketkalash bo'yicha eng so'nggi yong'in hisoblanadi.

Sizning apelsin sharbati siz o'ylagandek tayyorlanmagan bo'lishi mumkin.

So'nggi paytlarda bir nechta kompaniyalar o'z mahsulotlarini "sog'lom" yoki "GMO yo'q" deb noto'g'ri ko'rsatgani uchun katta daromad ko'rmoqda, hatto apelsin sharbati ham o'z tanqidiga munosib hissa qo'shmoqda.

PepsiCo brendi sharbat ishlab chiqaruvchisi Tropicana, pasterizatsiya, qayta ishlash, rang berish va xushbo'ylashtiruvchi vositalardan foydalanganiga qaramay, kompaniya apelsin sharbatini "100 foiz sof va tabiiy" deb soxtalashtirgan AQShning xatti-harakatlarini rad eta olmadi. Kundalik.

Sinflar harakati - bu 2011 yil dekabr oyiga to'g'ri keladigan xaridorlarning turli xil da'volari konsolidatsiyasi. Kompaniyaning veb -saytida bu kabi bahsli til, "hech qachon suv, shakar yoki konservantlar qo'shilmagan va u hech qachon konsentratdan emas, shuning uchun siz faqat apelsindan eng yangi, eng mazali ta'mi ”.

Da'vogarlarning bosh maslahatchisi Karolin Bartlett BeverageDaily ga bergan intervyusida natijadan mamnun ekanligini va jangni sudda davom ettirishini orziqib kutayotganini aytdi.

Ular sudda kurashni davom ettirishlari kerak bo'lsa -da, Tropicana o'z da'volari ortida turgani haqida bayonot tarqatdi. Tropicana 5 avgustda o'zgartirilgan shikoyatga javob beradi, deydi Beverage Daily.


Kaliforniyalik ayol OJ Giant Tropicana lazzat paketlarini sudga berdi

Anjelena Lyuis PepsiCo Tropicana kompaniyasini "aldamchi" reklamalar uchun sudga berdi.

Xushbo'y hid apelsin sharbati retseptida topilgan

2012 yil 20-yanvar va#151-Kaliforniyalik onasi apelsin sharbati giganti Tropikana bilan shug'ullanmoqda, da'vo arizasida, kompaniyaning konsentrlangan bo'lmagan Pure Premium sharbati "tabiiy" mahsulot emas, balki "qattiq qayta ishlangan".

Kaliforniyaning Sharqiy okrugi, AQSh okrug sudiga 6-yanvar kuni berilgan Vacavillelik 32 yoshli Anjelena Lyuisning da'vo arizasi va xushbo'y paketlar qo'shilishi sharbatning "muhimligini o'zgartiradi", deb da'vo qilmoqda.

"Tropikana" Tropikana apelsin sharbatini yasash haqiqatan ham san'at "deb da'vo qilsa -da, bu ko'proq fan", - deyiladi da'voda.

Agar sinf harakatlari oldinga siljiydigan bo'lsa, sud jarayoni Tropicana Pure Premium-ni sotib olgan, Tropicana Pure Premium-ni sotib olgan, har kimni anglatadi, Nyu-Yorkda joylashgan PepsiCo Inc.

Ular da'vo qilishicha, reklama da'volari chalg'itadi va Tropicana Products har xil shtatlarda iste'molchilarni aldash to'g'risidagi qonun hujjatlarini buzgan, shu jumladan Kaliforniyaning noto'g'ri reklama to'g'risidagi qonun.

Advokatlar, shuningdek, Kaliforniyadagi qonuniy chora -tadbirlar to'g'risidagi qonun va adolatsiz raqobat to'g'risidagi qonunga binoan o'z da'vosini bildirgan.

Da'vo arizasida Pure Premium brendining qadoqlanishi keltirilgan, uning ichida "somon yopishtirilgan apelsin tasviri bor, bu sharbat apelsindan yangi emas" degan xabarni etkazish uchun mo'ljallangan. "100 % sof va tabiiy apelsin sharbati" da'vosi katta ko'rinishda. "

Shikoyatga ko'ra, "bu tabiiy apelsin sharbati emas". "Buning o'rniga tabiatda emas, balki laboratoriyalarda ishlab chiqilgan mahsulotdir, bu uning saqlash muddatini ikki oydan ko'proq tushuntiradi."

Tropikana vakili Maykl Torres yolg'on reklama haqidagi da'volarga javob bermaydi, aksincha ABCNews.com ga yozma bayonot beradi.

"Bizning sharbatimiz xavfsiz, to'yimli va Tropikana shakar va konservantlarsiz 100 % ajoyib ta'mli apelsin sharbatini taqdim etishga sodiqdir", deb yozadi Torres. "Biz iste'molchilar mahsulotimizga jiddiy e'tibor berishiga ishonamiz va etiketkalash qonunlari va qoidalariga to'liq rioya qilishga sodiqmiz."

Tropikana har yili sotiladigan apelsin sharbatining bozor ulushining 40 foizini egallaydi va 2010 yilda dunyo bo'ylab chakana savdosi taxminan 5 milliard dollarni tashkil etdi.

Tropicana o'z veb-saytida Pure Premium-ning har 59 grammli konteynerida "16 ta yangi uzilgan apelsin" borligini aytdi.

"Anjelina Tropicanani o'z oilasi uchun mahsulot yorlig'idagi Tropicana tasviri asosida sotib oldi", dedi Lyuisning advokati Sara N. Vestkot. "Menimcha, ular odamlar tabiiy mahsulotlarga ustunlik berishini bilishadi va bundan foyda ko'rishadi. Agar u sharbat tayyorlashda nima bo'lganini bilsa, u mahsulotni sotib olmagan bo'lardi".

Uning so'zlariga ko'ra, Kaliforniya qonuniga binoan, da'vogarlar kamida 5 million dollar yig'ishni talab qilmoqdalar.

"Bu Amerika Qo'shma Shtatlarida hamma nomidan milliy harakat kostyumi", dedi Vestkot. Tropikanaga javob berish uchun 21 kun bor.

Uestkotning aytishicha, u "bizda kuchli ish bor" deb hisoblaydi.

Lyuis izoh berish uchun ABC News -ga qo'ng'iroq qilmadi.

So'nggi paytlarda Coca Cola tomonidan ishlab chiqarilgan ba'zi Minute Maid apelsin sharbati va uning ba'zi raqobatchilarining sharbatlarida karbendazim fungitsidining izlari topilgani haqidagi xabarlar paydo bo'ldi.

Bu sharbatlar Braziliyadan olib kelingan apelsinlardan qilingan, bu erda fungitsid qonuniydir va Coca Cola daraxtlar FDAga kimyoviy sepilgani haqida ogohlantirgan.

FDA Tropicana markalarida kimyoviy moddalar topmadi va kompaniya keyinchalik faqat Florida apelsinlarini ishlatishini aytdi.

Oziq-ovqat va farmatsevtika idorasi, sitrus sanoati ma'lumotlariga ko'ra, kompaniyalardan pasterizatsiya qilingan sharbatni markalashga (konsentrat va konsentrat bo'lmagan versiyalarni o'z ichiga oladi) xushbo'y paketlarni qo'shishni talab qilmaydi.

Tabiiy mahsulot degan da'volarga kelsak, agentlik vakili Siohban DeLensi: "FDA hech qachon" tabiiy "atamasini aniqlamagan. Ammo, agar u haqiqat va adashtirmasa, biz undan foydalanishga e'tiroz bildirmaymiz ".


Florida 's Natural har doim bir xil ta'mga ega bo'ladi

Siz apelsin sharbatining har xil markalari boshqacha ta'mga ega ekanligini payqagan bo'lsangiz ham, nima uchun bunday bo'lishi haqida o'ylamagandirsiz. Xuddi yangi siqilgan apelsin sharbati yoki hatto oddiy apelsin yeyish singari, har bir mevaning shirinligi yoki sharbatliligi biroz farq qiladi. Buning sababi shundaki, har bir apelsin sharbati retseptga amal qiladi va unga "lazzat to'plamlari" qo'shiladi (orqali Smitson jurnali). Agar brend sof apelsin sharbatidan boshqa hech narsani ishlatmasligini da'vo qilsa ham, bu har bir brendni bir -biridan ajratib turadigan lazzat to'plamlari.

Ga binoan Yaylov go'shtlarini oching, apelsin sharbati tutqichli tanklarda saqlanadi, u erda mevadan siqilganidan keyin kislorod sharbatdan chiqariladi. Kislorod yoki havoga ta'sir qilish oksidlanishga olib keladi, oksidlanish esa apelsin sharbatining qarishiga va oxir -oqibat yomonlashishiga olib keladi Onlayn kutubxona). Sharbatdan kislorodni olib tashlab, ishlab chiqaruvchilar sharbatni bir yil davomida hech qanday salbiy ta'sirsiz saqlaydilar. Muammo shundaki, kislorodni olib tashlash jarayoni apelsin sharbati bilan bog'laydigan ko'plab lazzat va xushbo'ylikni yo'qotadi.

Bu erda lazzat to'plamlari keladi. Ularni xushbo'y kompaniyalar apelsin mohiyati va yog'i bilan tayyorlaydilar. Bu shuni anglatadiki, apelsin sharbati hali ham "tabiiy" deb belgilanishi mumkin, garchi kimyoviy moddalar ko'p bo'lsa ham. Xushbo'y paketlar Florida shtatining Natural kabi har bir alohida markasi uchun maxsus ishlab chiqariladi, lekin ko'pchilik bahorda Florida Valensiya apelsinlarining ta'mi va hidiga asoslangan.

Yuqori ko'z klinikasi linzalarning "noto'g'ri" modeli haqidagi da'volarga duch keladi

Ko'zni tuzatish bo'yicha bozor rahbari Optical Expressda ishlagan jarroh, o'tgan yilning boshida Buyuk Britaniyada Mplus X linzalarining ishlashi haqida xavotir bildirganini aytadi. Surat: Alamy

Oxirgi tahrir 2017 yil 2 -dekabr, 06.17 GMT

Ushbu maqola Oculentis B/V va Optical Express tomonidan berilgan qonuniy shikoyat mavzusidir.

Ko'p milliard funtli ko'zni tuzatuvchi jarrohlik sanoati diqqat markazida bo'ldi, chunki regulyatorlar minglab bemorlarning ko'zlariga o'rnatilgan yangi sun'iy optikasi ko'rishni jiddiy yo'qotishiga olib keldi degan da'volar tekshirilayotganini e'lon qilishdi.

Rasmiylar o'z tergovini bir qancha manfaatdor jarrohlar bemorlarning ko'rish qobiliyati buzilganligidan shikoyat qilganliklari haqida guvohlik berishganidan keyin boshladilar, ba'zilarining aytishicha, bitta shifokorning so'zlariga ko'ra, qo'llarining cho'zilgan uzunligidan ko'ra aniqroq ko'rish qiyin.

Ko'zoynaksiz hayot izlayotgan 120 mingga yaqin odam har yili lazer yordamida yoki ko'pincha 50 yoshdan oshgan taqdirda tabiiy linzalarini jarrohlik yo'li bilan almashtirish orqali tuzatuvchi ko'z operatsiyasini o'tkazadi.

Hisob-kitoblarga ko'ra, o'tgan yili ko'p minglab odamlar Mplus X linzalari bilan jihozlangan bo'lib, ular marketing davrida va 3 000 funtdan oshadigan veksellar bo'yicha foizsiz kredit berish va'da qilingan.

Oculentis nemis kompaniyasi tomonidan ishlab chiqarilgan va o'tgan yilning yanvar oyida Buyuk Britaniyada ishlab chiqarilgan ushbu linzalar oldingi modellarda yaxshilangan ko'rsatkichni taqdim etishi kerak edi.

The Kuzatuvchi Biroq, Evropadagi eng yirik oftalmologik markaz bo'lgan Moorfields Eye Hospital NHS Trust, ob'ektiv haqidagi rasmiy hisobotni, implantatsiyalangan oltita bemorning to'rttasi ko'rish sifatining xavotirli yo'qolishi haqida xabar berganidan keyin bilib oldi.

Oculentis bosh ijrochi direktori Ben Vanders, shuningdek, Avstraliyadagi distribyutori, bu mamlakatda jarrohlarning shikoyatlaridan so'ng, "bu Avstraliya xalqi uchun ob'ektiv emas" degan qarorga kelganini tasdiqladi.

Dekabr oyigacha ko'zni tuzatish bo'yicha bozor rahbari Optical Expressda ishlagan jarroh o'tgan yil boshida Buyuk Britaniyadagi Mplus X linzalarining ishlashi bilan bog'liq xavotirlarini aytganini aytdi.

To'rt yil Optik Ekspressda jarroh bo'lib ishlagan Jorj Settas shunday dedi: "Men ularga bir necha bor Mplus X linzalarining ishlashi bilan bog'liq xavotirlarim borligini aytgandim, chunki menimcha, bu juda ko'p. boshqa linzalarga qaraganda bu linzada ko'rish sifati bilan bog'liq muammolar bo'lgan bemorlar. Tushuntirish - ya'ni olib tashlash - bunday linzalar umuman oson protsedura emas. Mplus X linzalari bilan eksplantlar sonining ko'payishi meni xavotirga solib, men bu masalani Optical Express -da ko'tardim. Oxir -oqibat, men tegishli nazorat organiga hisobot topshirishga majbur bo'ldim. "

U qo'shimcha qildi: "Bemorlar aniq ko'ra olmasliklaridan shikoyat qilishardi, odatda uzoqdan. Ko'pchilik o'qiy olishadi, lekin qo'llarining uzunligidan ko'ra yaxshi ko'rmaydilar, deyishardi, bu biroz hayratlanarli edi. Siz odamlardan bu masofada muammo bo'lishini kutmaysiz. ”

Optical Express, Settasning Mplus X linzalari bilan bog'liq ko'rish muammolarining sifati haqida xavotir bildirganini tasdiqladi, ammo uning natijalarini ilmiy tadqiq qilish tashvishlanish uchun hech qanday asos yo'qligini aytdi. Settas, shuningdek, Optical Express sentyabr oyida xavotir bildirganiga qaramay, noyabr oxirida Mplus X linzalari zaxiralarini o'z klinikalaridan olib tashlaganini da'vo qildi.

Optical Express klinik xizmatlari direktori Stiven Xannanning aytishicha, linzalarning ba'zi banklari klinikalarda qoladi va linzalar haqidagi xavotirlar boshqalarni olib qo'yishga sabab bo'lmagan. U Settas tomonidan oktyabr oyigacha har qanday xavotir ko'tarilganini rad etdi.

Xannanning aytishicha, kompaniya Mplus X -ning yangi versiyasini zaxiralashni davom ettirishning afzalligi yo'q, degan xulosaga kelgan, chunki u xuddi shunday natijalarga ega edi. U shunday dedi: "Mplus X linzalari bemorlar uchun ajoyib ko'z natijalariga ega. Bizning tajribamiz va ko'zning natijalarini batafsil baholash bu haqiqatni tasdiqlaydi. ”

Shanba kuni 28 yoshli ayolni himoya qilgan advokatlar, optik ekspress sentabr oyida ko'zlari lazer bilan jarrohlikdan shikastlangani uchun 500 000 funt sterling to'lashga majbur bo'lgan edi, shuning uchun u kun davomida ko'zoynak taqib yurishi kerak edi. firma ishdan beri ular bilan bog'langan va ba'zilariga Mplus X linzalari o'rnatilgan bo'lib, ular sinf harakatining bir qismi bo'lishi mumkin.

Devonshires advokatlarining hamkori Nik Grant shunday dedi: "Menimcha, Optik Expressga qarshi da'vo arizasini berishni istagan boshqa odamlar bo'ladi va kelayotgan da'volar soniga qarab, Devonshires Optical Express -ga qarshi sinf ishi ko'rishini kutadi. yaqin kelajakda ushbu Mplus X linzalari muammosi haqida. Devonshires hozirda ekspertga hisobot tayyorlash uchun ko'rsatma berishdan oldin mijozlarning tibbiy kartalari nusxalarini olmoqda. Mening maslahatim shuki, ularga Mplus X linzalari berilgan deb o'ylaydigan va natijasi umidsizlikka uchragan har kim yuridik maslahat olishlari kerak.

Tibbiy salomatlikni tartibga solish boshqarmasi vakili: "Biz hozir tergov qilyapmiz va kerak bo'lganda chora ko'ramiz", dedi.


Samsung Galaxy Note 7 -dan yuqori sinfdagi harakatlarga qaraydi

Samsung Electronics Co. yong'inga chidamli Galaxy Note 7 vilkasini tortib olganidan so'ng, da'vogarlarning advokatlari Janubiy Koreyaning texnologik gigantiga qarshi kurashga kirishdi.

Samsung bir hafta oldin, Galaxy Note 7 ishlab chiqarishni to'xtatib qo'yganini, global miqyosda qayta chaqiruvlar ketidan, qurilma va uning o'rnini almashtirish haqidagi xabarlarga javoban javob berdi. Kompaniya xatolarni tuzatishga harakat qildi: Note 7 egalariga Samsung -ga sodiq qolsalar, keyingi smartfonlariga 100 dollar, agar qilmasalar 25 dollar chegirma taklif qildi.

Bu Nyu -Jersi federal sudiga topshirilgan taklifni bekor qilish uchun etarli emas edi. Shikoyatga ko'ra, mamlakat bo'ylab Note 7 xaridorlari millionlab dollarga tushgan.

16 -oktabr shikoyati, kafolat buzilishi, vijdon buzilishi va umumiy qonuniy firibgarliklar haqida, 7 -chi xaridorlarning umummilliy sinfini yoki hech bo'lmaganda uchta shtatda: Kaliforniya, Pensilvaniya va Nevada shtatida telefon sotib olgan odamlarni ifodalashga qaratilgan.


Sud jarayonlari OJdan chiplarga "tabiiy" da'volarni rad etadi

VASHINGTON (AP) - Apelsin sharbati ishlab chiqaruvchi Tropicana o'z brendini o'rmondan yangi sifatida sotadi, lekin butun mamlakat bo'ylab bir qator sud jarayonlari shuni ko'rsatadiki, kompaniya sharbasi shunchalik qayta ishlanganki, uni "tabiiy" deb bo'lmaydi.

Huquqshunoslarning ta'kidlashicha, Nyu-Jersi shtatida o'tkazilgan 20 ga yaqin da'vo arizasida kimyoviy ta'mga ega bo'lgan "lazzat paketlari" qo'shiladi, bu esa uni butun yil davomida tatib ko'radi. Payshanba kuni advokatlar Vashingtonda yig'ilishdi va sudlar hay'ati oldida da'volar qaerda guruh bo'lib ko'rib chiqilishi haqida bahslashishdi.

Tropikana izoh berishdan bosh tortdi, lekin o'z bayonotida etiketkalash qonunlariga to'liq rioya qilish va "100 % mazali apelsin sharbati" ishlab chiqarishga sodiqligini bildirdi.

Apelsin sharbati bo'yicha da'volar - bu "barcha tabiiy" da'volar haqidagi so'nggi bahslar. So'nggi bir necha yil mobaynida bir qator yirik milliy brendlar xaridorlar aldamchi yorliqlar deb atashgan. Tostitos, SunChips, Snapple va Ben & Jerry muzqaymoqlari ham xuddi shunday hujumlarga duch kelgan.

Sud jarayonlari shu qadar keng tarqalganki, oziq -ovqat va ichimliklar ishlab chiqaruvchilarning 300 dan oshiq assotsiatsiyasida fevral oyida bo'lib o'tgan konferentsiya doirasida mavzu muhokama qilingan panel bor edi. Oziq -ovqat va ichimliklar kompaniyalari vakillari advokatlari o'z mijozlariga ehtiyot bo'lishlarini aytishdi. Muammoning bir qismi, huquqshunoslarning fikriga ko'ra, iste'molchilar sog'lom mahsulotlarni qidirishadi, va kompaniyalar o'z mahsulotlarini "tabiiy" deb yaratib, markalash bilan javob berishgan.

Oziq -ovqat va farmatsevtika idorasi, Amerika Qo'shma Shtatlarida qadoqlangan oziq -ovqat mahsulotlarini etiketkalashni nazorat qiluvchi agentlik, "tabiiy" deb hisoblanadigan narsalarning ta'rifiga ega emas. "Tabiiy" deb nomlangan taomga qo'shimcha rang, sun'iy lazzat yoki sintetik moddalar qo'shilmasa, agentlik bunga e'tiroz bildirmaydi.

Bu etarli ko'rsatma emas, deydi ba'zi huquqshunoslar.

"Tabiiy muammo-bu tartibsizlik", dedi Vashingtondagi oziq-ovqat xavfsizligi va targ'ibot guruhi, Jamiyat manfaatlari fanlari markazi ijrochi direktori Maykl Jeykobson, 7UP va Kapri Sun ishlab chiqaruvchilarining tabiiy ishlab chiqarishni to'xtatishiga yordam berdi. o'z mahsulotlari haqida da'volar.

Jeykobson va boshqalarning aytishicha, FDA tomonidan ko'rsatma berilmasligi ko'p savollarni qoldirgan.

Bitta savol shuki, makkajo'xori qayta ishlash yo'li bilan ishlab chiqarilgan, lekin tabiiy ravishda paydo bo'lmaydigan fruktoza makkajo'xori siropi bo'lgan mahsulotni tabiiy deb belgilash mumkinmi? Bu 2007 yildagi Snapple ichimliklari bo'yicha sud jarayonidagi muammo edi. Snapple, "hamma tabiiy" deb nomlangan mahsulotlarda yuqori fruktoza makkajo'xori siropi ishlatilmasligini aytdi va Nyu -York sudyasi oxir -oqibat Snapple foydasiga qaror chiqarib, ishni yopdi, ammo boshqa da'volar hali ham bu atamaning ishlatilishiga shubha tug'dirmoqda.

Ko'p "barcha tabiiy" da'volar hali boshlang'ich bosqichida, - dedi apelsin sharbati bilan bog'liq sud jarayonlarida ishtirok etuvchi va "hamma tabiiy" ishlarni yaqindan kuzatuvchi advokat Kelli Lerner. Lernerning so'zlariga ko'ra, apelsin sharbati bo'yicha da'vo singari, boshqa shunga o'xshash da'volar ham bir xil xaridorlar mahsulotni sotib olgan barcha odamlar nomidan sudga da'vo qiladilar.

Da'volar bekor qilinishi yoki sudga yuborilishi mumkin edi, lekin kompaniyalar iste'molchilar bilan hisob -kitob qilishga va mahsulot chiptalarini yoki chegirmalarni taklif qilishga rozi bo'lishlari mumkin edi. Masalan, Ben & Jerry's va Breyers muzqaymoqlariga ega bo'lgan kompaniya, shu yilning boshida "barcha tabiiy" sud jarayonlarini 7,5 million dollarga hal qilib, "Chubby Hubby" va "Chunky Monkey" kabi lazzatlarni sotib olgan mijozlarga 20 dollargacha pul chegirmalarini taqdim etdi. Muzqaymoq kompaniyasi, shuningdek, o'z qadoqlarini o'zgartirishga rozi bo'ldi va apelsin sharbati da'vosida qatnashgan advokatlar ham shuni xohlaydilar.

"Men ularning marketingini o'zgartirishlarini istardim, shunda iste'molchilar o'z xaridlari to'g'risida xabardor bo'lishlari mumkin", - dedi Tropikanaga qarshi sud jarayonlaridan birida qatnashgan advokat Stiven A. Vayss.

Tropikana sudlari qisman 2009 yilda apelsin sharbati sanoati haqida yozilgan Alissa Xamiltonning "Siqilgan: apelsin sharbati haqida siz bilmagan narsalar" kitobining natijasidir. Yel doktoranti Hamilton apelsin sharbatini tadqiq qila boshlaganida, besh yil davomida bu sohani o'rganib, Tropikana xodimlari, paxtakorlari, fermerlari va boshqalardan intervyu oldi. Tropikana da'vosida ishtirok etayotgan firmalardan biri bilan maslahatlashgan Hamilton, Tropikananing etiketkasini aniqroq ko'rishni va "yangi", "tabiiy" va "sof" kabi so'zlardan foydalanishni to'xtatishni xohlashini aytdi.

"Bu shunchaki to'q sariq emas, murakkab to'q sariq rang", dedi u. "Men shunchaki halollik va oshkoralikni himoya qilishga harakat qilaman."

Zara owner Inditex to close all stores in Venezuela, local partner says

Inditex, owner of brands including Zara, Bershka and Pull & Bear, will close all its stores in Venezuela in coming weeks as a deal between the retailer and its local partner Phoenix World Trade has come under review, a spokesperson for Phoenix World Trade said. Phoenix World Trade, a company based in Panama and controlled by Venezuelan businessman Camilo Ibrahim, took over operation of Inditex stores in the South American country in 2007. "Phoenix World Trade is re-evaluating the commercial presence of its franchised brands Zara, Bershka and Pull&Bear in Venezuela, to make it consistent with the new model of integration and digital transformation announced by Inditex," the company said in response to a Reuters request.

Norway faces climate lawsuit over Arctic oil exploration plans

A lawsuit has been filed against the Norwegian government over a decision to open up the Barents Sea for oil exploration which campaigners say violates the country’s constitution and threatens the Paris climate agreement.

The case is being brought by an alliance including Greenpeace, indigenous activists, youth groups, and the former director of Nasa’s Goddard institute for space studies, James Hansen.

Norway is seen internationally as a green role model by many for its pledge of climate neutrality by 2030, its reliance on hydropower and ambitious plans for electric cars.

But Conservative prime minister, Erna Solberg, could now be forced to appear before an Oslo city court on charges of violating Article 112 of the country’s constitution, which guarantees every citizen’s right to a healthy, diverse and productive environment.

Truls Gulowsen, the director of Greenpeace Norway, said: “Signing an international climate agreement while throwing open the door to Arctic oil drilling is a dangerous act of hypocrisy. By allowing oil companies to drill in the Arctic, Norway risks undermining global efforts to address climate change.”

The case hinges on licences handed out to 13 oil companies - including Statoil, Chevron and Aker BP - allowing oil exploration in the Barents Sea, the most northerly point yet prospected.

Several exploratory wells are planned to open in 2017, and these could help wreck the Paris climate agreement’s ambition of holding global warming to 1.5C, the plaintiffs say.

In a letter to the prime minister seen by the Guardian, Hansen compares Norway’s behaviour to that of a “climate rogue state”.

“I will not mince words, Mrs Solberg,” he says. “Your government’s actions are utterly at odds with the scientific consensus that underpins the Paris agreement. Norway appears hell-bent on sabotaging the treaty before it has even come into effect.”

Speaking to the Guardian from Oslo, Hansen added: “Norway is not all that green. It is burning 70% more fossil fuels per person than Sweden, and mining 20 times more fossil fuels than it needs for its own use. It is using that to create wealth but it is going to have to decide: does it want to be a rogue state or does it want to obey the rule of law?”

Next month, a ruling is expected in a similar civil rights-style class action that Hansen and his grand-daughter, Sophie, filed against the US government, along with 20 other young people.

Shifting the climate fight towards the courts is a new strategy for campaigners, with high-profile legal actions being heard in the Netherlands and the Philippines in the last two years. Several more lawsuits are being prepared around the world, although campaigners will not yet share details.

The Norwegian case focuses on a constitutional amendment – Article 112 – passed in 2014 that has never been tested in a court of law.

This stipulates that “every person has a right to an environment that is conducive to health and to a natural environment whose productivity and diversity are maintained. Natural resources should be managed on the basis of comprehensive long-term considerations whereby this right will be safeguarded for future generations as well.”

Gulowsen said: “The constitutional passage is unexplored territory but our lawyers believe we have a very strong case. The factual basis [of the claim] is there. The question is how the court will deal with the facts.”

Another litigant, Ingrid Skjoldværfrom the Nature and Youth group, added: “We will argue in court that the Norwegian government has an obligation to keep its climate promises and will invoke the people’s right to a healthy environment for ours and future generations. This is the People vs Arctic oil!”

One firm which is not participating in the new Arctic oil rush is Shell, which pulled out of a drilling project in Alaska’s Chukchi Sea last year, privately conceding reputational damage.

Publicly, Shell blames low oil prices for its retreat from the Barents this time. Tor Arnesen, the director of A/S Norske Shell, said: “Despite knowing we could have explored safely, both environmentally and technically, the current conditions are such that we globally have to prioritise activities with a shorter return on investment.”

The center said it had previously raised concerns about the “natural” claims on Nature Valley products with General Mills in 2010 and that the company had taken high fructose corn syrup out of most of them, but had not removed the other two ingredients.

The Food and Drug Administration recently denied an application by the Corn Refiners Association to change the name of high fructose corn syrup to corn sugar on nutrition labels. Consumer groups had opposed the request because some consumers have adverse reactions to the substance and might be confused by the less specific identification.

Early onset bipolar disease, attention deficit/hyperactivity disorder, obsessive-compulsive disorder and anxiety were diagnosed in Ms. McKendrick’s daughter at age 6, and she was prescribed three medications.

After doing some research, Ms. McKendrick, who teaches agriculture in Kern County, Calif., decided to eliminate all foods with dyes and processed ingredients from her daughter’s diet to try to control her condition. “Everything we eat is organic or all natural,” she said. “I’ve cut out all additives, preservatives, dye, everything, and after two years of doing that, she’s been released from all those diagnoses, all of them.”

Ms. McKendrick had been feeding her daughter what she thought was a wholly natural diet for some time but some lingering anxiety persisted, she said.

During that time, she had purchased Nature Valley Chewy Trail Mix Fruit & Nut Granola Bars, Nature Valley Sweet & Salty Nut Cashew Granola Bars and Nature Valley Dark Chocolate and Peanut Butter Granola Thins for her daughter believing that the “100% Natural” on the box meant they no processed ingredients in them.

Finally, after more research and scouring her Feingold Program Foodlist, a guidebook for people treating mental disorders with diets, she realized the Nature Valley products had processed ingredients in them. “I was shocked,” Ms. McKendrick said. “It’s false advertising.”


Food Labels Are LYING To You. Spot These Lies On The Package!

You’re grocery shopping and trying to find a safe cooking oil. You’ve been cleaning up your diet and want something healthy to saute all those veggies you’ve been eating. Since you’ve read my investigations, you know that canola, soybean, and other processed oils are out because they are ridiculously bad for you. You see a shelf lined with cooking sprays like PAM, and recall hearing that those aren’t healthy for you either, until you see this one…

It says simply “100% Extra Virgin Olive Oil” right there on the front of the can.

So you think, “Bam! This is perfect! It contains just 100% olive oil without any nasty unhealthy additives”.

Well, what if I told you this product was lying to you? That there’s not really 100% olive oil in that can?

Smucker’s (the maker of Crisco) has been sued for misleading the public into believing this cooking spray contains 100% Extra Virgin Olive Oil – because it simply isn’t true (1). This cooking spray actually contains Soy Lecithin, Dimethyl Silicone, and Propellant, which could be found discreetly listed on the ingredient label on the back of the can (which the average consumer doesn’t look at):

Soy Lecithin : This emulsifying additive is “produced by degumming crude soy oil extracted from soy flakes with hexane” (2). Hexane is the neurotoxin (3) that comes from gasoline production. It’s possible that some hexane remains in the finished product (4) and almost all toxicology research on hexane focuses on the industrial use and inhalation of hexane, so no one knows exactly how dangerous eating it is – but it surely isn’t healthy.

Dimethyl Silicone : This silicone ingredient is commonly used in lubricants and hydraulic fluids (2). Again, not much research has been done on what happens when we actually eat it.

Propellant : This is used to propel the spray from the can, but it’s not simply compressed air. According to the lawsuit, the ingredient is “Propane and Isobutane, substances that are classified as ‘Hazardous Ingredients’ by the Occupational Safety and Health Administration” and Crisco is “violating state and federal law by refraining from disclosing the common or usual name” of these ingredients on the packaging (2). In other words, even the ingredient label is lying to you.

After they got sued, Crisco changed their packaging to remove the “100%” from the front of the can, but kept the ingredients the same.

This just goes to show how far they were willing to go to mislead customers and didn’t change until they were caught and sued. It’s just so outrageous because when a product says that it’s 100% of something, don’t you think it should really be 100%?

The thing is, this isn’t an isolated event. Many products lie on the front of the packaging, for example…

  • Ocean Spray 100% Juice isn’t 100% juice. It also contains natural flavors, pectin, and synthetic vitamin C.
  • Best Foods Olive Oil Mayo is actually made with mostly soybean oil, rather than olive oil.
  • RXBar proudly lists the ingredients on the front of their package, but they suspiciously leave off the natural flavors. No B.S… right?
  • Canada Dry Ginger Ale says it’s “Made from Real Ginger” but you won’t find ginger listed anywhere on the ingredient list. This is the subject of another lawsuit that just settled for $11.2 million (5) – so they will be changing their deceptive labels soon (6).

I could go on. I can’t count how many times I’ve been shopping and found a product with a marketing claim on the front of the package that was so misleading that it was hardly true.

This is a reminder to ALWAYS read the ingredient list on your food and not to trust what the front of the package says. Food labels are lying!

If you know anyone who might be swindled by lies like these, please share this post with them. People need to know the truth.


5 misleading label claims struck down by the FTC

In an industry with intense competition and millions of dollars in sales on the line, food manufacturers sometimes toe the line between truth and a questionable claim to sell a product.

Consumers are looking more closely than ever at labels as they eat more healthier, natural foods. For most shoppers, they should be able to believe any health benefits heralded on the packaging because companies are required to have scientific proof backing up their bold statements.

But in an industry besieged by intense competition and changing consumer tastes, food manufacturers sometimes toe the line between truth and a questionable claim to sell a product and distance themselves from their competitors — with the Federal Trade Commission there to catch them if they stray too far. Even knowing they could be subjected to the FTC’s scrutiny, some food and beverage makers still try to get away with bending the truth.

“Companies create these things because they’re hoping to create a message that will stick in the consumers’ minds,” Jonah Berger, a professor at the Wharton School of the University of Pennsylvania who studies how products, ideas and behaviors catch on, told Food Dive.

But do claims like "promotes weight loss" or "more calcium than a glass of milk" really have an impact on the bottom line? Berger said that it's hard to tell whether it will translate to increased sales, but “companies spend a lot of money on this in the hope that it will."

Larger brands generally seem to be immune to the ire of the FTC, but they have been known to push the envelope on occasion. Here are five of the label claims that have been struck down or challenged by the regulatory agency.

Kellogg’s Frosted Mini-Wheats

Frosted Mini-Wheats claimed its cereal was clinically proven to improve kids’ attentiveness by nearly 20%. In its case, the FTC expressed concern over several assertions produced by Kellogg, which makes the popular breakfast item.

“What we found was the clinical study that they had first of all compared eating Frosted Mini-Wheats to having just water for breakfast," Mary Engle, the FTC's associate director for advertising practices, told Food Dive. " So it was basically having breakfast versus not having breakfast, which we thought needed to be disclosed.”

The claim also overstated the results. The average attentiveness of a child eating the cereal for breakfast only improved 11%. One in seven kids got the 18% improvement, which the company said was "nearly 20%"

In 2009, the case was settled, and Kellogg was “barred from making claims about the benefits to cognitive health, process, or function provided by any cereal or any morning food or snack food unless the claims were true and substantiated,” according to the FTC.

Within a year, Kellogg’s ad team ran into problems again after they violated the terms of the settlement with a new unsubstantiated claim, this time for Rice Krispies cereal.

The product packaging stated that Rice Krispies cereal “now helps support your child’s immunity,” with “25 percent Daily Value of Antioxidants and Nutrients – Vitamins A, B, C, and E.” This ad campaign was launched at the start of cold and flu season in the fall, implying that eating Rice Krispies Cereal will help protect the consumer from catching these illnesses.

The FTC took action quickly, modifying their previous order for the Frosted Mini-Wheats case, and broadening it to include future claims of any health benefits. If Kellogg violates this order in the future, the Michigan company would have to pay a civil penalty of $16,000 per violation. Kellogg has not made any fraudulent claims since this order was reached.

Gerber’s Good Start Gentle Formula

From 2011 to 2014, Gerber Products, a subsidiary of the Nestle, advertised that its Good Start Gentle formula would prevent or reduce the risk for infants to develop allergies. Ads included lines such as “You want your baby to have your imagination…Your smile…Your eyes…Not your allergies.”

"FDA evaluated it and thought there wasn’t very much science to support the claim at all, but Gerber turned that into a gold seal claim.”

FTC's associate director for advertising practices

In 2009, Gerber petitioned the FDA for permission to make a claim connecting partially hydrolyzed whey proteins (PHWP) to the reduced risk of atopic dermatitis, or eczema, in infants. The FDA consented, but only if Gerber clearly stated there is “little scientific evidence” for the causal relationship. Gerber turned that into approval to claim their product is the “1st and Only” formula that “Meets FDA Qualified Health Claim,” and that it would prevent or reduce the risk of allergies in general.

“What the facts are, is that they submitted their claim to FDA,” says Engle. “FDA evaluated it and thought there wasn’t very much science to support the claim at all, but Gerber turned that into a gold seal claim.”

In October 2014, the FTC charged Gerber with deceptive practices and accused it of lacking scientific evidence to make the general allergy-prevention claims. The matter is currently in litigation.

Kevin Goldberg, vice president and general counsel for Gerber, defended the company when the FTC suit was filed.

“Gerber always has and will continue to treat its mission of delivering nutrition and benefits to infants as its top priority," he told USA Today. "We believe the information conveyed in our marketing is important for parents who have children at risk for atopic dermatitis, the most common allergy in infancy.”

Engle told Food Dive the matter currently is in litigation.

Tropicana Healthy Heart Orange Juice

Tropicana claimed d rinking two to three glasses a day of its “Healthy Heart” orange juice would produce dramatic effects on blood pressure, cholesterol and homocysteine levels, reducing the risk of heart disease and stroke.

Tropicana ran the “Healthy Heart” ads in 2002, and again in 2004. In July 2002, during the juice maker’s extensive national advertising campaign, FTC staff expressed concern about the claims. Tropicana quickly dropped them, and the FTC didn’t require that it sign a formal order.

In February 2004, Tropicana ran a very similar “Healthy Heart” ad as a two-page spread in Newsweek magazine. In most cases, the FTC takes the scale and reach of an ad campaign into consideration when investigating a claim. Since the agency had already expressed concern in 2002, the FTC challenged the advertising as overstating the heart-healthy benefits in an order, which would fine Tropicana if they ran those claims for a third time.

By June 2005, Tropicana settled FTC charges that it lacked evidence to support its heart and stroke-related claims tied to the orange juice.

Greg Shearson, president of Tropicana Beverages North America, spoke with the L.A. Times when the deal was reached. “The settlement was not an admission that the law has been violated," he said.

Tropicana hasn’t violated the order since then.

POM Wonderful

POM Wonderful's 100% Pomegranate Juice and POMx supplements claimed in extensive advertising that the products had "Super health powers . backed by $25 million in medical research" showing they prevented or treated heart disease, prostate cancer and erectile dysfunction. It even touted scientific research and claims in advertisements, including it’s “40% as effective as Viagra.”

The trouble was POM's studies didn’t support the claims the company was making. POM Wonderful's claims were especially egregious because of their ads, Engle said.

“Most of them touted that they had spent $25, $30 million dollars in research on the product, so they really hammered you over the head with the fact that they had done serious, scientific research on these products, so you could rely on the claims,” she said.

But in reality, Engle said the science was very weak.

POM Wonderful didn’t just drop its ads in 2010 when the FTC charged them with making false and unsubstantiated claims about its products. The case went into litigation and it was ruled that POM Wonderful did not have adequate research to back up its health claims. POM Wonderful appealed the decision, but the order was once again upheld.

“We continue to stand behind our efforts to publicly convey valuable information about the health benefits of POM,” Steven Clark, a company spokesman, told Reuters in May 2016.

In light of POM Wonderful’s claims, the FTC’s complaint included a more severe order that would require the FDA to approve any future health claims that the company's product prevents or treats serious diseases.

Kentucky Fried Chicken

Kentucky Fried Chicken claimed in ads that one of its Original Recipe chicken breasts has only 11 grams of carbohydrates and 40 grams of protein. It also claimed that two Original Recipe fried chicken breasts were healthier than eating a Burger King Whopper.

These claims would be true if the consumer took the breading and skin off of the fried chicken breasts before eating them. KFC, a subsidiary of Yum! Brands, failed to include this nutritional information in its advertising.

The FTC charged the restaurant chain in 2004 with false claims about its relative nutritional value, and for claiming its chicken was compatible with a low-carb/high-protein weight loss program. The FTC found two fried chicken breasts have more calories and more than three times the trans fat and cholesterol than a Whopper. It also contained more calories than the popular burger. And neither the Atkins or South Beach diets condone eating breaded, fried foods, the agency said.

Soon after the KFC ads ran, they were criticized by consumers and industry experts alike. The Washington Post reported that Advertising Age wrote an editorial on the campaign, calling them “laughable and damaging,” and encouraged KFC to pull the spots immediately.

KFC settled the case, but did not admit any fault or liability.

Scott Bergren, chief marketing and food innovation officer at KFC, told The Washington Post it agreed to the settlement "to put the issue behind us." He added, "We have always believed our ads to be truthful and factually accurate."

What's next for food labeling claims?

Food manufacturer’s today can glean a good deal of insight from the cases brought against other companies, according to Engle.

“I think it’s important for companies to make sure that their advertisement claims don’t overstate the benefits, that they don’t get ahead of the science.” says Engle. “And if the science is weak or limited, that you can’t have these strong, hard-hitting advertisement campaigns.”

“People no longer care about the claim, they care about the ingredient table, and they have educated themselves to be able to read it intelligently and be able to translate it into what they feel is important to them.”
