Vote number 2005-533 prohibiting lawsuits about obesity against food providers
on Oct 19, 2005 regarding bill HR 554 The Cheesburger Bill
Results: Bill Passed: 306-120

The Personal Responsibility in Food Consumption Act ("The Cheesburger Bill") would prevent civil liability actions against food manufacturers, marketers, distributors, advertisers, sellers, and trade associations for claims relating to a person's weight gain, obesity, or any health condition associated with weight gain or obesity. A YES vote would:
  • Prohibit such lawsuits in this act in federal or state courts
  • Dismiss any pending lawsuits upon this bill's enactment
  • Maintain an individual's right to bring a lawsuit to court for false marketing, advertising or labeling of food when such information led to injury, obesity or weight gain
