UPDATE: Dannon Activia Lawsuit Dismissed

In September of last year, I wrote on how Dannon called a lawsuit targeting its Activia yogurt “baseless.”   Last week, a Federal judge confirmed that view by dismissing the lawsuit and holding that milk protein concentrate (MPC) was allowed in yogurt and that the FDA’s proposed limitation from 1981 on what milk-derived ingredients may be added to “yogurt” was not in effect.   And in 2004, the FDA stated that MPC could be added to yogurt.

Please see the Court’s ruling here and a complete write-up on this decision here.
