June 22, 1998 The American Council on Science and Health (ACSH) has been monitoring the activities of The Center for Science in the Public Interest (CSPI). After a lengthy investigation of CSPI's activities, we have come to some very grave conclusions about this group, which is regularly trusted by Americans as a source of information about food safety. Our findings reveal that CSPI is knowingly engaging in deceptive practices as they attempt to persuade the public and the media that their food safety scares are legitimate. Below, you will find a description of the facts that were uncovered during our investigation. Rosie O'Donnell
Last week The Center for Science in the Public Interest (CSPI) circulated a press release (enclosed) lauding television host Rosie O'Donnell for turning down an offer to become a spokesperson for Frito-Lay's "Wow" chips. CSPI is campaigning against the right of consumers to purchase snack foods that, like "Wow," contain the FDA-approved fat substitute olestra.
