FTC Commish Tackles Kids Food Ads

Aug 20, 2008  •  Post A Comment

FTC Commissioner Jon Leibowitz said the failure of companies to do the right thing by not marketing food inappropriately to children could bring more regulation when the next Congress and next president take over, the Wall Street Journal reports. Mr. Leibowitz, who has taken a stand against excessive advertising for soft drinks and fatty foods, said companies that advertise those products should take a hint from the alcohol industry, which self regulates when it comes to targeting younger people, the Journal reports.
