In recent years, the food and beverage industry has been the focus of food-related disputes and class action lawsuits brought by various claims including product labeling, price gouging, foodborne illnesses, and other deceptive acts allegations. As a result, the Federal Trade Commission (FTC) prescribed guidance on unfair or deceptive practices involving material representation, omission, and practice that can be misleading to consumers.
