HB 670: Civil Liability from Weight Gain Suits

H.B. 670, P.N. 763 (REICHLEY) This would amend Title 42 (Judiciary and Judicial Procedure).
A food purveyor or association of food purveyors would have civil liability from any claim of weight gain or any health condition associated with weight gain due to the long term consumption of food. An exception to this liability exemption would occur if the food was illegally misbranded or adulterated or if food laws were willfully violated and the injury was proximately caused by this illegal action or violation.

Someone should show the movie "Supersize Me" to the legislature and then let them decide. McDonald's has gotten rich knowing that it is poisoning its customers with fat and sugar, and they don't want to claim any responsibility while they earn high profits? Profits are more important than our health, I guess.
