Damages Models in Food Labeling Class Actions

📆 Thursday, February 7, 2019 | 2:00-3:00 PM ET | Consumer Litigation Committee | Numerous class action suits continue to be brought alleging food mislabeling involving the package size, the nation of origin, the functional and health benefits, or the contents of consumer products.
