The Southern District of New York joins the list of federal courts that have recently rejected potential class action suits brought against restaurant and food manufacturers for the alleged false advertisement of their food products as “GMO-free.

A federal judge in New York dismissed a proposed class action against Dannon Company, Inc. (“Dannon”), for violations of Minnesota’s deceptive trade practices, false advertising, and consumer fraud laws, and fraud under various other state laws.  The plaintiff alleged that Dannon systematically advertised its yogurt products as “All Natural,” even though the yogurts contained ingredients derived from animals raised on GMO-rich feed, and, but for Dannon’s misrepresentations, she and other putative class members would not have been willing to purchase the yogurts.
