CSPI Urges Nationwide Recall of Spykes "Liquid Lunchables"

4 April 2007 .WASHINGTON—They come in colorful teeny two-ounce containers and in kid-friendly flavors like Spicy Mango, Hot Melons, Spicy Lime, and Hot Chocolate.

The good news is that Chinese food is often rich in vegetables and the fat comes mostly from heart-safe, trans-fat-free vegetable oils. More good news is that Chinese food hasn’t gotten worse since CSPI first looked—which is something that certainly can not be said about typical American-style restaurant food..

Chain Restaurants Charged With Promoting “X-treme Eating

 WASHINGTON—A 2,000-calorie appetizer. A 2,000-calorie main course. Another 1,700 calories for dessert. Those aren’t typos. It’s more like par for the course at Ruby Tuesday, On the Border, the Cheesecake Factory, and countless other top table-service chain restaurants. But since those chains make almost zero nutrition information available on menus, their customers don’t have a clue that they might be getting a whole day’s worth of calories in a single dish, or several days’ worth in the whole meal.
