Description

Class action suits targeting labeling practices of food and beverage manufacturers, distributors, and retailers remain steady. Plaintiffs' attorneys allege food products that make certain claims--such as containing particular nutrients--are misleading and violate state deceptive advertising laws.

Issues of ascertainability, predominance, standing, federal preemption, and primary jurisdiction abound in food and beverage labeling class cases. Counsel must understand strategically raising or defeating these issues to obtain the best results for their clients.

Listen as our authoritative panel of class action defense counsel updates class litigators on the latest legal developments in, and strategic considerations for, class claims over food and beverage labeling. The panel will discuss how courts are addressing issues of ascertainability, predominance, preemption and standing.
