CSPI is the lefty food activist organization whose attacks recently included launching an entire site dedicated to attacking Coca-Cola, and was one of the most outspoken proponents of soda bans across the country.
God forbid an individual should do what he wants rather than what these buttinskys what him to do.
The example given was the dried blueberries found in many cereals and breakfast foods. Even though these foods contained dried blueberry bits, as listed on the label, this was not good enough for Jacobson. “It’s fake,” he told Rossen.
Rossen even began his piece by stating, “No one thinks you’re getting a full day’s serving of fruit in a box of cereal.” These companies don’t claim to replace fruit for consumers, and most boxes clearly say the word “flavor.” Still, CSPI finds it absolutely unconscionable to have something strawberry flavored if it doesn’t actually contain strawberries.
And, of course, consumers are too stupid to make their own choices — which is why we need the government to keep them on the straight path — as determined by the leftist thought police, of course.
