When one party lies to,

When one party lies to, deceives, or otherwise coerces another party in the interest of getting that party to part with something of value, that is fraud. A business that injects poison into its food in order to reduce costs and subsequently lower prices so consumers will purchase their products, it is essentially a party coercing another party into parting with something of value, which in this case is money.

So, if you think fraud should be illegal, then, from what I understand, you should also conclude that businesses should be required to indicate to their customers that the products they are selling are poisonous. Personally, though, I don't think fraud should be illegal because I don't think anything should be illegal. Legality implies the existence of a state.
