As a smart shopper, you've hopefully learned to take all product packaging with a sizeable grain of salt, but frozen meals in particular can trip you up with misleading labels and hidden health horrors.

While that news is a bit depressing for all of us too time-crunched to do more than pop a frozen dinner in the microwave, there is some hope.
