In a letter to leading supermarket chains, Vermont Representative Peter Welch took issue with the packaging and shelf placement of the “All Natural Syrup” line of table syrup produced by Log Cabin.

The primary issues raised in Rep. Welch’s letter related to potential customer confusion due to the similar packaging and frequently close shelf placement of the Log Cabin “All Natural Syrup” line and maple syrups from Vermont producers. Below are pictures of a “Vermont Pure Maple Syrup” package and the Log Cabin package. We at the Food Liability Law Blog would love to hear from readers what you think – Is the Log Cabin Package misleading or confusing? Is it problematic for the two products to sit on the same supermarket shelf? What does the wording “All Natural” on the Log Cabin package convey to you?
