A corporate watchdog organization, Corporations and Health Watch, has issued a call for food industry critics who have been threatened with litigation for saying “anything critical about food,” to submit information about their experience to the organization. According to the group, corporations are using the food disparagement laws now in effect in 13 states “as leverage to silence their critics, frequently sending threatening letter[s] to those who speak out or those who publish [their critiques], threatening to sue under these menacing laws.”
