In the current environment, many food companies are interested in marketing products that help support a healthy immune system. This session will discuss the legal requirements for making such claims for both foods and supplements, including the distinction between disease claims and structure-function claims, as well as the FDA and FTC substantiation requirements. We’ll discuss recent enforcement action involving “immunity” related claims, including FDA Warning Letters, class action litigation, and more.
