The oversight, he said, may have been avoided if Health Canada hadn't excluded industry research from its consultation process - a move meant to avoid conflict of interest.

Heavy lobbying from well-funded food industry groups with these same concerns created controversy during the last overhaul of the Canada food guide 12 years ago. She said the industry must do a better job getting its message out.
