Olestra was approved by the association of Food and Drug Administration for use as a food additive in 1996 and was initially used in potato chips under the WOW brand by Frito Lay. In 1998, which was the first year Olestra products were marketed nationally after the FDA’s Food Advisory Committee confirmed a judgment it made 2 years earlier, sales were over $400 million (Nestle 338). However, by 2000 sales slowed to $200 million, largely caused by the unappealing health warning label, which was mandated by the FDA:
This Product Contains Olestra. Olestra may cause abdominal cramping and loose stools. Olestra inhibits the absorption of some vitamins and other nutrients. Vitamins A, D, E, and K have been added.
This condition became popularly known as "anal leakage," though this term never actually appeared on the label.

how do you know if an anal discharge is "oily" if you don't work it a little with your fingers?
