Title: Labeling Laws
Post by: NuclearDruid on March 27, 2007, 08:38:26 am
GlaxoSmithKline just got called out on one of their products. Just goes to show that "buyer beware" is not trumped by labeling laws.

Schoolgirls find there's no C in Ribena (http://www.smh.com.au/news/business/schoolgirls-find-theres-no-c-in-ribena/2007/03/27/1174761419393.html)

Ribena, first made in the 1930s and distributed to British children during World War II, is now sold in 22 countries.

GSK paid little attention to the claims of Devathasan and Suo until their complaints reached the commerce commission.

But it now faces 15 charges related to misleading advertising in an Auckland court, risking potential fines of up to $NZ3 million ($2.65 million).
