Earlier this fall, Danone settled a class action lawsuit that had been brought against the company in Québec Superior Court. The lawsuit claimed the company made unproven health claims, notably that Danone yogurt can strengthen your immune system and regulate digestion. Danone is said to have agreed to pay $1.7 million to Canadians who bought Activia®, Activia® Light or DanActive® after April 1, 2009. The settlement agreement must be approved by the Québec Superior Court at a hearing scheduled on November 6, 2012. This is a reminder that companies must be careful to justify any health claims made in product advertisements.
