Good Start Infant Formula

March 2019: A federal judge granted class certification for the Florida and New York classes but denied class certification for North Carolina and Multistate classes.

February 2017: This case was consolidated with two similar cases (Hasemann v. Gerber and Manemeit v. Gerber) for discovery and pretrial purposes.

March 2016: A class-action lawsuit was filed against Gerber Products Company for allegedly falsely advertising its Good Start line of infant formula made with whey-protein concentrate. According to the complaint, the company claims in its marketing that consuming the formula reduces the risk of infants developing allergies and that the FDA endorses the formula for this purpose when such claims are false. (Greene et al v. Gerber Products Co. d/b/a Nestle Nutrition, Nestle Infant Nutrition, and Nestle Nutrition North America, Case No. 16-cv-1153, E. D. NY.)
