ABC’s Good Morning America

  • Trevor Ault: “Shrinkflation is when companies make the size of their products smaller without cutting prices. A report from Pennsylvania Senator Bob Casey found the size of some Oreo cookies has decreased by 6% since 2019. And a family size of Wheat Thins has dropped 12% in weight. […] Last week, Senator Casey introduced a bill that would give the FTC and state attorneys general authority to crack down on shrinkflation.”


  • Vanessa Yurkevich: “You have Bob Casey saying that they actually have a bill for [fighting back against shrinkflation]. They want the FTC to crack down on corporations that are shrinking their products while keeping prices the same if not higher. Surprising fact that paper goods has actually seen the biggest shrinkflation in the last few years. And you also have the worry about something called greedflation. This is essentially when corporations may see prices softening on some of their products, but still keep the product smaller. And that is what we do not want to see.”
