Food products that are mislabeled should have the manager of the store selling such an item notified. For instance, if a consumer has bought a product where the label states refrigeration after opening is unnecessary, and finds that it spoils, then that's an error in labeling. Also, perhaps a better example might be a substance in a health food store that is sold as a product that improves eyesight, needs a label that says the FDA has not made any determination on such a product, and there are no such substances. The product making a claim is mislabeled if it does not have the described label on no FDA approval.
