Following is the statement of Gary Ruskin, executive director of Commercial Alert, on today’s Federal Trade Commission-Health and Human Services report on food marketing and childhood obesity.

“Today’s FTC-HHS report is a candy-coated present the junk food industry. The industry will be thrilled that the government recommends no federal restrictions on junk food marketing to children, despite the continued worsening of the childhood obesity epidemic. The report merely recommends more self-regulation, which has historically been a dismal failure.”

“The FTC-HHS report represents yet another fat payback to the food industry for its generous support for the Bush-Cheney 2004 campaign. The report shows, once again, that the Bush administration cares more about the profits of the food industry than the health of our children.”
