A January 2, 2009 piece by Timothy W. Martin on labeling intended to indicate healthier food choices quotes ACSH's Jeff Stier:

Still, consumers shouldn't fall into the trap of buying any item with a label on it and assuming it is healthy, says Jeff Stier, associate director at the American Council on Science and Health, a consumer group based in New York. Portion control and reading the nutritional label, he says, are still the most important things to determine a food's health.

"Even if you see a big bag of chips with a label on it, that doesn't mean you can go crazy," Mr. Stier says.
