Good Start Infant Formula
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.)
