U.S. Supreme Court

United States v. Johnson, 221 U.S. 488 (1911)

United States v. Johnson

No. 433

Argued April 13, 1911

Decided May 29, 1911

221 U.S. 488


The term "misbranded" and the phrase defining what amounts to misbranding in § 8 of the Food and Drugs Act of June 30, 1906, 34 Stat. 768, c. 3915, are aimed at false statements as to identity of the article, possibly including strength, quality and purity, dealt with in § 7 of the act, and not at statements as to curative effect, and so held that a statement on the labels of bottles of medicine that the contents are effective as a cure for cancer, even if misleading, is not covered by the statute.

177 F.3d 3 affirmed.

The facts are stated in the opinion. chanroblesvirtualawlibrary
