Politico Pro quotes Angel Garganta on GMO labeling

1 min

Venable partner Angel Garganta was quoted in an August 5, 2016 Politico Pro article on GMO labeling on food products. While federal legislation recently signed into law lacks enforcement provisions, several legal fights over “natural” labeling are expected to provide food companies with incentives to stay in line on GMO disclosures.

"Food and beverage and supplement companies are very well aware that their labels are being scrutinized not only by government regulators, but by the plaintiff class action bar," said Garganta. Those attorneys "walk down the supermarket aisle with the Code of Federal Regulations in one hand and their shopping list in the other," so companies "are very, very well aware of the potential for consumer class actions."
