Helping Manufacturers Ensure Compliance In Food Packaging Materials

With ever-changing compliance rules, manufacturers need to be sure that the materials they receive are acceptable for use in the packaging they produce. Information from materials suppliers is one important source of information, and needs to be carefully reviewed, and in some cases, further investigation is advised. If any material is not compliant, the manufacturer and the supplier could be held accountable under the law.

If you have questions about whether any component of your packaging is compliant, it is important that you have sound advice from a qualified attorney. At the law firm of Eric F. Greenberg, P.C., we represent clients across the United States and around the world in a wide variety of food packaging component review and compliance matters.

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.)
