Mislabeling and False Product Claims Fraud Attorneys in New York City

  • “Natural,” “All Natural,” “Naturally Derived,” but contains synthetic ingredients
  • “Hypo-allergenic,” “Non-toxic,” “Plant-derived,” “Plant-based,” “Mineral-based,” “Bio-based” but contains synthetic ingredients and may even cause allergic responses

  • Does not contain “Antioxidants”
  • Falsely labeled as having “No added sugar”
