Lawsuit may force feds to add nutrition and ingredient labels to wine
Three leading consumer groups claim it’s time for “basic transparency”
The other shoe has dropped in the wine ingredient and nutrition label discussion.
The Center for Science in the Public Interest, which is about as big-time as these kinds of groups get, has joined two other consumer-focused policy organizations to force the federal government to add the labels to wine.
This week, the center, the Consumer Federation of America and the National Consumers League sued the Treasury department, which oversees booze regulation. The groups claim the federal government has failed to act on a 19-year-old petition urging it to require alcohol labeling “with the same basic transparency consumers expect in foods.”
