20 Examples of Companies Using Misleading Packaging

 As unfortunate as it may sound, deception is the name of the game for an overwhelming number of companies these days. One of the most glaring marketing tactics through which consumers are being shamelessly manipulated is deceptive packaging. As these 20 pictures prove, companies are constantly lying about the size and the quality of their products through mislabeling items, putting things in bigger boxes, and distributing the contents of the product in a very misleading manner. The only question I have is, how’s all this legal?
