DH has the Forbes alert thing installed and it just popped up about a lawsuit against Splenda...

NEW YORK - In the headlines this afternoon, a lawsuit alleges that Johnson & Johnson is sugar-coating Splenda to consumers.

The Sugar Association, Merisant Worldwide, which makes rival artificial sweeteners Equal and Canderel, and a group of individuals have filed three class-action suits against J&J's (nyse: JNJ - news - people ) McNeil Nutritionals Worldwide unit. They claim McNeil misleads consumers into believing Splenda is a natural product.

OK...since it doesn't come right out of the ground or out of an animal, it's GOT to be processed...hmmm...how "natural" could it be?!

I caught the tail end of that commercial and couldn't figure out what the point was. (IMG:http://www.sugarbustersforum.com/forum/style_emoticons/default/unsure.gif) (IMG:http://www.sugarbustersforum.com/forum/style_emoticons/default/huh.gif) I'll watch for it again. Hubby tried going to the website; but it was down at the time. I didn't care for the commercial because it was loud and obnoxious among other things. I couldn't agree with you more...personal responsibility!
