Date: Apr 12, 2018

Eve Pelonis will present "Food Labeling Enforcement and Compliance Priorities in the Current Environment" at the FDLI's Food Enforcement and Compliance Conference. The conference, be held April 12, 2018 in Washington, DC, will delve into the latest trends and guidance concerning both enforcement risk factors and strategies for ensuring compliance and minimizing legal risk in the current environment. During Eve's session, the panel will look at trends in FDA warning letters and FDA enforcement/compliance policies with respect to nutrition labeling, menu labeling, and FDA’s use of enforcement discretion to allow noncompliant uses of “healthy” claims, etc. Additionally, the panel will address the intersection of FDA enforcement and consumer class actions as plaintiffs’ lawyers use material from FDA warning letters and FDA’s lack of regulation of certain labeling claims, such as “natural” as the basis for filing suit, as well as AMS rulemaking on GMO labeling.
