Ladies - and men who use anti-frizz products - if you bought Garnier Fructis Sleek & Shine Anti-Frizz Serum ANY TIME after Feb. 4th 2008 and live in California or New York, you could be due $$$ compensation!
Why, you might ask? Because the product is HIGHLY flammable, yet neglects to label itself as such!
And when used in conjunction with heated styling products

Authorities in China's southwestern city of Chongqing are cracking down on Wal-Mart for selling crappy pork and labeling it as good pork!
The company allegedly fraudulently labeled ordinary pork as more-expensive organic pork and 12 stores have been closed as a result.
This isn't the first incident that raised eyebrows either.
Since 2006, the giant retail store chain has been punished 21 times by Chongqing city officials for violations including false advertising, mislabeling, and food safety!
In it's most recent incident, the stores must remain closed for 15 days while cooperating with the investigation.
This incident makes us wonder: If they're selling overpriced pork in China, are they selling it here too?

Here's some good news for those who don't want to wear fur.
California is sending a proposed law to the State Senate that would require special labels for any clothes made of fur.
The state currently allows many fur products to go unlabeled if they use less than $150 worth of animal fur.
Author of the bill Fiona Ma said in a statement following the 46 to 7 vote:
"I think there is an expectation that if clothing isn’t labeled as real fur it must be fake, but this isn’t always the case. People have a right to know if they are buying raccoon, dog or a polyester blend."
The new legislation is similar to the Humane Society's lawsuit against Saks and Neiman Marcus that now requires the retailers to have stricter labeling regulations.
