Can’t Believe it’s Not (Low Fat Salad Dressing)? You’re Right, Class Alleges

Sometimes food tastes too good to be true.  After all, that has always been the marketing gimmick of vegetable spread makers “I can’t Believe it’s Not Butter”.  However,  a new lawsuit filed on November 29, 2010, claims there is a food product on the market that actually is too good to be true.

The complaint alleges that Galeos, LLC, the makers of Galeos ‘low fat’ Miso Dressings, falsely advertised and marketed its salad dressing as being lower in fat than it actually is. The salad dressing, apparently heavily marketed to viewers of the ‘Biggest Loser’, a television show where contestants compete to lose weight, allegedly is much higher in fat, calories, and sodium than advertised.  This isn’t some rounding gimmick either.  In fact, the complaint alleges that independent testing shows that the salad dressing has nearly 10 times the amount of fat, calories, and sodium as advertised.  Yikes.  If the facts of this lawsuit are proven to be true, the next time I opt for a healthier, less hearty, eating decision, the makers of Galeos Miso Dressings might make me think twice.

What other foods seem too good to be true?  Should we get them tested?
