Ron Levine was interviewed by online news service FoodNavigator.com in an article discussing the proper role of the courts in food and beverage labeling class actions as well as the shorter window of time for addressing crisis. Ron notes the challenges posed by products coming to market at a faster pace than the process of FDA rulemaking, but argues the courts are not the proper forum for making decisions on labels. "Since labeling is a national issue and you do not manufacture a product for New Jersey only or Arkansas only, it's very important to have consistent, national rules," he concludes.
