This volume is written by an experienced food and drug consultant on problems relating to the laws governing food manufacture and marketing. The laws themselves are not reproduced but their application to all aspects of food labeling is discussed in detail. Following a brief historical sketch on the evolution of food regulation, twenty chapters are devoted to problems of food labeling. Under each subject the regulations are outlined and their meaning is interpreted. Subsequently all possible ways in which intentional or unintentional violation might be made are discussed. The frequent use of sample statements or situations serves to make all points clear and the information practical. The sections dealing with food standards and their violation are particularly informative. The style of presentation is simple, straightforward and nontechnical. Frequent quotations from governmental trade correspondence and court decisions add specificity. This book can be recommended as exceedingly valuable to any one interested
