Holding the Control: Lawyers at Console & Hollawell Examine Consumer Empowerment Through Online Petitions
Date:3/21/2013

Marlton, NJ (PRWEB) March 21, 2013

As the use and influence of social media communities has increased, so has the number of Americans taking a stand for safer food products with the help of online petitions, according to CBS News. In the case of the most recent such petition, two nutrition bloggers have encouraged more than 200,000 Americans to sign a petition calling for the end of the use of allegedly hazardous yellow dyes 5 and 6 in Kraft Macaroni & Cheese products sold in the United States. As the controversial petition continues to make national headlines, Richard P. Console, Jr., of Console & Hollawell looks into the trends behind successful consumer empowerment movements.

“We shouldn’t have to be afraid to use the products on our retail store shelves. We shouldn’t have to question what a food or cosmetic will do to our health or whether these products will harm our families,” Console said. “The only way to make a change is by making a stand. Consumer petitions and public backlash has helped get unhealthy or undesirable ingredients out of food and personal care products such as Campbell’s soups, Starbucks’ drinks, and Johnson & Johnson’s shampoos. With an educated and empowered consumer population, all Americans can feel more secure knowing that products across the country are being made safer and healthier for the whole family.”

The growing influence of consumer demands is good news for Americans who are tired of waiting for the government to step in and regulate products that are associated with potentially long-term health conditions, Console said in his latest article, “Answering to Us: How Consumer Efforts Get Dangerous Products off the Market.” Still, the only truly empowered consumer is an educated consumer, Console said, urging all consumers to read, understand, and research product safety information.
