Food and Beverage Litigation: Recent Trends, Issues, and Challenges
In recent years, the food and beverage industry has been the focus of food-related disputes and class action lawsuits brought by various claims including product labeling, price gouging, foodborne illnesses, and other deceptive acts allegations. As a result, the Federal Trade Commission (FTC) prescribed guidance on unfair or deceptive practices involving material representation, omission, and practice that can be misleading to consumers.
With these prevailing risks and challenges, food companies, manufacturers, and their counsel must be abreast of emerging regulatory developments and court rulings to keep them guided, ensure effective and efficient litigation strategies, and successfully win in this type of lawsuit.
