Mead Johnson, Maker of Enfamil, Loses Multi-Million Dollar False Advertising Case Against Store-Brand
U.S. District Court Judge James R. Spencer issued his written rulings yesterday following the November 10th jury verdict. Judge Spencer’s written rulings permanently enjoined Mead Johnson from making any false statements concerning PBM's infant formula, including the claims Mead Johnson previously made in Enfamil advertising that "It may be tempting to try a less expensive store brand, but only Enfamil LIPIL is clinically proven to improve brain and eye development," and "there are plenty of other ways to save on baby expenses without cutting back on nutrition." The Court also ordered Mead Johnson to retrieve from the public domain all advertising or promotional materials containing these or any other false claims about PBM's store brand infant formula.

As I’ve mentioned before, I need to be able to be thrifty when feeding my family. As a 1 income family, we can’t afford to over-spend on ANYTHING, even food. So when I hear about things like this, I feel the NEED to pass it along to my bloggy friends.
In fact, I’ve written in the past about how I can easily feed my family for under $15 a meal, but the fact is, when it comes to HOLIDAY meals, that’s just impossible.
Or is it?!
Sav-A-Lot is making it easy this holiday season to feed your family of 4 a wonderful holiday meal for UNDER $20! I know – it sounds impossible, right? But it’s not! They’re offering a $5 coupon on their website, and with the rest of the fixings for a delicious holiday meal priced REALLY nice, it’s a snap. Santa would be proud.
You might be thinking “yeah, but what do THEY consider a nice holiday meal? Spam and boxed mashed?”
Their menu includes ham, sweet potatoes, salad (with dressing), veggies, pineapple for the ham, rolls, mac & cheese AND PIE! All of that for $20 and then you apply the $5 coupon and you’re feeding your family for $15.
With over 1,500 stores nationwide, there’s sure to be one near you. Go grab your holiday dinner and then put the extra money you saved towards a present for yourself! :)
Have a bigger family than 4? No problem – the coupon is good for purchases over $20, so grab some extras and still, you save $5 on it.
