As long as there is a demand for an easy way to rate a product there will be producers who will want to take advantage of the people who want a quick and simple answer. I have been in a hurry and been caught out sometimes, but I find if you have time to read the label properly, you won't be as deceived.
Misleading label information on the origin and comparative wholesomeness of the product (eg organic/free range/no artificial/non-GMO) are trickier as it seems the legislation itself is designed to help some products slip under consumers watchful radar
