Milberg LLP has filed a class-action lawsuit against Frito-Lay claiming that the company’s packaging on Sun Chips and Tostitos chips is misleading. The claim is based on the use of genetically modified seeds corn and vegetable oil used in the product.

Milburg has previously sued ConAgra for the same reason. While things are slow next week, tell your clients to fact check their packaging.
