Food labeling litigation is one of the fastest growing areas of class action litigation today. New cases are being filed all the time alleging that food manufacturers have labeled and marketed their products deceptively. Food manufacturers (and the lawyers who advise them) need to ensure not only that they comply with labeling regulations, but also that they avoid marketing products in ways that invite lawsuits. This course, presented by Lauren Handel of Foscolo & Handel PLLC, The Food Law Firm, provides an overview of food labeling regulation, the causes of action asserted by consumers and competitors, key defenses, and the types of labeling and marketing claims that plaintiffs have targeted in lawsuits.


Learning Objectives:

I.     Identify the regulatory framework for food labeling and marketing

II.    Understand the basic legal claims and defenses asserted in food labeling litigation

III.   Recognize risky labeling and marketing claims that could subject a food manufacturer to civil liability
