Class Action Lawsuits & Case Studies


Recorded February 16, 2022

Session Summary
More class action cases challenging food labeling claims were brought in 2021 than ever before. The class action case has become the primary means for enforcing the prohibition against “false or misleading” label claims.

In this session, we will review the following topics:

• The latest court decisions on natural, wholesome, artisan, handcrafted, made with real fruit, vanilla flavored, “veggie,” sustainable, fair trade, GMO Free, Non-GMO, and other claims not specifically governed by formal FDA regulations.

• Examine lessons learned from real case studies.

• Weigh the costs of taking calculated risks, defending label claims, and learn how to avoid the class action trap.
