December 2, 2015

Partners Angela Spivey and James Neale, senior counsel Andrew Phillips and Benjamin Abel (whose admission to the Virginia bar is pending) co-authored an article for Food Manufacturing magazine titled, “The FDA Gets Pulled Into the ‘Natural’ Labeling Fray: Surprise Move May Change the Food Fight.” The article discusses the uncertainty created by the FDA’s previous inaction in defining the term ‘natural’ on food product labels and how its apparent intention to regulate the use of the term may impact food manufacturers and labeling litigation.
