Phoney blueberries???

Florida Hound | Dec 7, 2011 05:40 AM

There is an EMail going around alerting us to the widespread practice of packaged food products (breakfast cereals, muffins, baking mixes...) that tout "blueberries" actually not containing any blueberries whatsoever! Or, the "blueberry bits" are so insignificant that the red food dye, blue food dye, etc. are the real players on the ingredient list. This information struck me as massively false advertising. I sometimes read ingredient labels, often do not, but I will pay attention the next time I buy some blueberry muffin mix. Has anybody else heard much about this?
