April 5/Philadelphia: The Future of Food: Labeling and Litigation

The food industry is under attack. With the rising popularity of movies like “Food Inc.” and “Fast Food Nation,” there is increasing public demand for information about our food – where it came from, how it was grown, and whether it is good for us.
And with that increasing demand has come increasing scrutiny of food labels—by consumers, by states, and by the federal Food and Drug Administration. The result has been an onslaught of recent litigation questioning the use of labels like “all natural,” “organic,” “zero trans fats,” and “low-fat” as well as a push to tighten regulatory controls on how the food industry communicates about food.
Our panel will discuss the legal basis for lawsuits about food labeling, the regulatory landscape affecting labeling claims, and the issues facing companies in today’s dynamic food industry.
