  • Marketing claims that promote the nutritional value, ingredient quality, and health-related benefits of food have increased significantly in recent years because of consumer expectations and competitive pressures. The amount of product and scientific information being communicated is also greater due in part to the use of company web sites. This has resulted in more enforcement actions by regulatory agencies, complaints raised through industry self-regulatory bodies, and a flood of class action lawsuits under state consumer protection laws. When there is a threatened or filed class action lawsuit regarding food marketing claims, key decisions will be based on an analysis of both substantive and procedural issues, in light of regulatory and litigation developments.
