I was watching ...can't remember the right morning show...the one Bryant Gumbel used to be on
..anyway, the anchors were discussing junk food and one person brought up the fact that there is a class action suit going on against MacDonald's, KFC, Burger King and Wendy's. It was explained that the group is claiming that they are knowingly selling to the public, food that is making us fat and unhealthy..that they are not fully disclosing everything that is put in the food. Anyone know anything more about this? None of the anchors seemed to think this case would go very far.

MSG is an addictive neurotoxin just like nicotine.
It causes health problems like nicotine. If they can sue the tobacco companies for using this to profit , why not the food industry?

In Aug 1985, I underwent back surgery at Walter Reed Army Medical Center (Harrington Rods)to correct a scoliosis problem in my back. After the surgery I was given some tainted blood. I believed this is when all my health problems began. When I turned 40 yrs of age in the military, I took an over 40 physical and I was diagnosed with hypertension and type 2 diabetes. I was in good health before I had this back surgery. In October 2002 I was admitted to the hospital here in Fayetteville when my heart stopped on me for 20 minutes. After recovery I was told by the VA that I had contracted Hepatitis C by and the Lab report showed it was from a blood transfusion. I would like to know if I can file a class action suit against Walter Reed Army Medical Center in Washington, DC.

You need to talk to a lawyer.

I hope those guys at Nutrasweet get their teeth kicked so hard that they have to lower their pants to chew their food.

I think it has to do with the fact they are trying to hide MSG and NOT let the buyer know that it contains MSG when they are consciously trying to avoid it. Indirect may mean they are putting it ingredients which then are being put into other products.

Deb A., This may be the lawsuit. I had put this link on MSGtruth.org a while ago. Sounds like they may have been successful. https://www.lawyersandsettlements.com/case/msg_new_jersey
