Class action lawsuits against food companies are becoming a common scenario. Many of those class action lawsuits are based on the claim that a product’s advertising or labels have misled the consumers. The cases involve small, consumable products. Food class action lawsuits have been prevalent for a few years now; however, the field is still developing as more cases make their way through the court.
This live session by expert speaker Christopher G. Van Gundy will discuss the updates for the class actions and food law. The specific challenge is to identify roughly the four or five major sources of liability in the food supply chain, and focus on the “Food Court,” the unique development of class action law in Food Court cases, and to discuss several trending issues in the Food Court today.
The webinar is intended to raise awareness about food labeling, marketing and advertising claim exposure, explain the current situation, and steps to take to minimize liability exposure.
