Misleading fruit vignettes

This morning, my husband asked me, "Are there any blackberries in this yogurt?"  The ingredient list didn't say so, though "natural flavors" were listed before carrot juice, but the picture on the front features pomegranates, strawberries, and blackberries.  If the amount of blackberry juice is so low that it can't be put on the label, then isn't the vignette misleading?  For earlier discussion, see here.

Ugh. I hate stuff like that. The juice issue in particular drives me up the wall, and it's been getting worse over the past 5 years. Juices that used to contain what they were labeled have gradually become majority apple juice. Recently, I found it impossible to find 100% cranberry juice at the regular grocery store, even within Ocean Spray they only had the cocktail, not the 100%.
