These are the companies that decided that they don't want their customers to know what is in the products they buy. These companies hid behind a national association to disguise their role in influencing elections and misleading consumers. They deserve to lose at least as much as they contributed to their campaign of misinformation. Please join in spreading consumer awareness about these companies and let everyone know to avoid buying their products, so they realize just how damaging their actions can be and hopefully adopt better practices, with consumer safety in mind, in the future.
