Partner Lewis Rose presented at the Food and Drug Law Institute’s Food Hot Topics program on January 27, 2010. The program was comprised of four, half-day workshops for professionals in the food and dietary supplement industries. Mr. Rose spoke at a workshop titled “Claims Substantiation and Fraud Issues.” This session covered regulatory (FDA and FTC) criteria and enforcement actions with respect to food and dietary supplement claim substantiation (amount, type and quantity of evidence, as well as defining the type of claim) and litigation (attorneys general and private actions) regarding unfair competition and false advertising, including fraud allegations.
