“Thompson & Knight Prevails in ‘All Natural’ GMO Lawsuit, FDA to Step In”
A federal court in California ruled Thursday that the Federal Drug Administration would have to determine whether an Irving-based company’s food products were mislabeled as “all natural” since they contain genetically modified organisms (GMOs). The lawsuit involves Gruma Corporation, a United States subsidiary of its parent company, based in Monterrey, Mexico, which is the largest manufacturer of corn flour and tortillas in the world. Greg Huffman, a partner in Thompson & Knight’s Dallas office, represented Gruma. Huffman focuses his practice on antitrust, complex commercial litigation, criminal investigations and mergers and acquisitions.
