Truth in advertising


We have been discussing Honesty.

One may not beautify a product for sale if the beautification will cover up a flaw, unless consumers normally test the product in a way that will uncover the flaw.

For example: One who is selling a beverage may not add a coloring agent that will mask its dilution, unless it is standard for the consumer to taste the beverage before buying it.

(Code of Jewish Law Choshen Mishpat 228:9-14)

Have a great day,
