Bloomberg BNA Class Action Litigation Report

Ron Levine was quoted in the Bloomberg BNA Class Action Litigation Report article "Kashi Agrees to $5 Million Settlement; Will Remove 'Natural' From Food Labels." In the article, which details a proposed settlement to a federal lawsuit regarding the company's use of the words "all natural" and "nothing artificial" on certain foods, Ron opines that "eventually, the majority of these actions are either dismissed or settled." Ron also added that "new products are hitting the market at a faster pace than the Food and Drug Administration can pass on certain wording," while expressing concern that "whatever words are used to replace 'natural' will prompt another onslaught of claims."
