Created on May 10, 2021





Food labeling continues to be a popular target of class action litigation. Class action plaintiffs' lawyers have moved beyond products represented as "natural" to challenge a wider variety of allegedly misleading claims and other issues in the marketing of food and beverage products-from technical violations of FDA regulations to statements about how foods were produced. Food marketers must balance the need to differentiate their products in a highly competitive marketplace against the risk of inviting costly litigation.

  • The regulatory framework for food labeling and advertising
