Washington, DC – Tomorrow the self-described “food police” at the Center for Science in the Public Interest (CSPI) will file a class-action lawsuit against an as-yet-unnamed fast food restaurant company. According to CSPI, the suit is designed to alter “a key practice of the chain.” Although the suit targets a restaurant company, the loser is certain to be the American public.
More than five years ago, the Center for Consumer Freedom (CCF) predicted that CSPI would eventually resort to frivolous litigation to force restaurants to bend to its radical nutrition mandates. Since CSPI’s message of fewer food choices, increased taxation and regulation, and outright food bans have failed to resonate with the public, the group’s only remaining option is to use the courts to usher in its brave new world of trial-lawyer-designed menus.
Center for Consumer Freedom research analyst J. Justin Wilson said: “This lawsuit isn’t surprising. CSPI has spent the better part of five years holding press conferences to threaten legal action over foods including ice cream, French fries, soft drinks, and breakfast cereal. Since consumers aren’t abandoning the foods they love, CSPI is using the courts to force its will on all of us.”
The nonprofit Center for Consumer Freedom fights to expose the activist groups working to restrict Americans’ food and beverage choices through misinformation, intimidation, regulation, and taxation.
