Division Weeds Out False Food

March 02, 1992

Ron Cuff's letter to the editor ("D.A.'s Crab Caper," Feb. 25) omits mentioning that:

* Lucky Food Centers admittedly misrepresented foods other than the fake crab meat (e.g., pastries labeled as made with pure dairy products were in fact made with substitutes);

* Lucky continued such misrepresentation despite several warnings;

* False labeling and false advertising are illegal.

I also disagree with Cuff's opinion that pouring more money into the bottomless pit of public education would enable the average shopper to distinguish between crab meat and ersatz.

Thank God for our D.A.'s competent Consumer-Environmental Protection Division. I, for one, want assurance that a supermarket's all-beef hot dogs are not made from cats, dogs, horses, and/or anonymous road kill.
