Galeos dressing may be too good to be true

I feel like I’m trapped in a “Seinfeld” episode. The one about the nonfat frozen yogurt. Everyone was eating nonfat frozen yogurt and George and Elaine started gaining weight. Elaine had the frozen yogurt analyzed and it wasn’t nonfat after all.

Well, it seems that the salad dressing I raved about before Christmas may suffer from the same problem. A reader sent me an e-mail with a link to a story in the L.A. Times. It’s about a class-action lawsuit that has been filed against Galeos, the makers of the miso dressing that I love so much. Later this morning, I received an e-mail from one of the lawyers who filed the case. He suggested the lawsuit, which argues the product misleads customers into believing their product is low-calorie and low-fat, might give me “pause.”

Yeah, it might. I’d also like to believe the company’s claims that their dressing really is diet-friendly.

While the lawyers argue, I’m going to warn all the people I already urged to try the dressing.

Be careful with Galeos miso dressing. It may not be what it claims to be. It might be too good to be true.
