Food and dietary supplement class action litigation continued – and evolved – throughout the pandemic, and there is no indication that filings will slow down anytime soon. Join leading plaintiffs’ and defense litigators for a roundtable discussion that will cover the latest developments in: (1) Heavy metals in baby food and other environmental contaminant-based lawsuits; (2) Flavor litigation including vanilla products and fruit-flavored water; (3) Challenges to dietary supplement health and benefit claims; and (4) Increased focus on ESG (Environment, Social, and Governance) claims by both industry and the Plaintiffs’ bar. Panelists will also discuss recent settlements and what they might mean for pending and future cases
