It was an honor and simply a fun time serving on a webinar panel (Nuts and Bolts: Integrating Food Law Into Your Practice) with Michael Reese earlier this week on how to litigate food mislabeling cases. Many thanks to webinar organizer extraordinaire Rebecca Smolar with the National Association of Consumer Advocates.

Far too often, food manufacturers allow their marketing department to trump their regulatory compliance department on what statements can go on packaged food. It is unlawful to say, for example, that a product has “no preservatives” when it, in fact, contains preservatives. This is but one of many examples of how food manufacturers mislead the public in the hope of gaining a competitive advantage over their competitors.

Herrington Law has been at the forefront of litigating these cases and there seems to be no end in sight to what food manufacturers will say to market their products.
