Experienced Representation For Food Contact Materials Approval Issues

Food packaging is as heavily regulated as the food it contains. Every substance in packaging is subject to rigorous food contact compliance requirements. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) requirements are complex and evolve over time, and it can be difficult for suppliers, converters, manufacturers and end users to keep track.

Attorney Greenberg is widely recognized for his comprehensive knowledge in this area and his ability to provide sound and timely solutions.

WHAT ONE COURT CASE CAN TEACH

What One Court Case Can Teach

By Eric F. Greenberg, Attorney-at-law

To help understand the recent scourge of private lawsuits brought against food packagers over the information on their product labels, let’s dive deeply into the recent decision in Mazella v. The Coca-Cola Company, in which consumers in New York State sued Coke claiming its bottled Gold Peak iced tea was misleadingly labeled as being “slightly sweet.” Spoiler alert: The case was dismissed—that is, thrown out—by the judge. I’ll discuss the judge’s lengthy Opinion and Order from July 21. (I can send you a copy if you ask for it at my email address below.)
