Federal Trade Commission Sues Gerber over Claims Food Reduces Allergies Dispute over Benefits of Whey Proteins
Oct 31 14
The Federal Trade Commission sued Gerber Baby Products, saying the company strayed too far from science with claims its Good Start Gentle formula could prevent babies from developing allergies. The company created a gold star for its label touting Food and Drug Administration approval, but the FTC says that's misleading, too. Gerber, aka Nestle Nutrition, said in a statement that peer studies support its allergy claims and that if the FTC has its way, it would deny parents this critical and important information and deny this benefit to infants. The formula for this dispute: Gerber Gentle Start contains partially hydrolyzed whey proteins in place of intact cow proteins. Companies have to get the FDA's approval to make health claims, so Gerber asked the FDA to approve its claims that the whey proteins could reduce an infant's risk of atopic dermatitis based on emerging studies. The FDA rejected several Gerber's petitions but said it would consider forgoing enforcement action if Gerber made a narrower claim pointing out that the relationship between whey proteins and atopic dermatitis was uncertain, because there is little scientific evidence of the relationship. The FTC says Gerber went too far when it created the gold badge touting the FDA's qualified approvals and when it proclaimed Good Start Gentle the first and only routine formula to reduce the risk of developing allegories.

Gerber Products Company, Del Monte Corporation, Beech-Nut Nutrition Corporation Face Lawsuit for Lead Contamination in Products
Apr 8 13
Gerber Products Company, Del Monte Corporation, Beech-Nut Nutrition Corporation face a trial as some of their food items have been found to be contaminated with miniscule amount of lead. Many baby foods containing carrots, peaches, pears and sweet potatoes have a little amount of lead in them. Lawsuit also covers grape juice and fruit cocktail. The case has been scheduled for Monday. It has alleged Gerber and some other baby food makers that their products contain lead in them. The trial will decide whether the companies must add a warning label for products. Environmental Law Foundation has urged that the case must be taken seriously and the lawsuit must be filed in Alameda County Superior Court in Oakland. Lawyers for these food firms have reported that the products were found to be clean from the U. S. Food and Drug Administration. The products were sold after thorough scrutiny. These products that have been targeted contain the amount of lead far below the standard.
