Brandeis University has filed suit against a number of cookie and biscuit manufacturers, including Keebler Co., Famous Amos Chocolate Chip and The Pillsbury Co., alleging that they have infringed patents that adjust the LDL/HDL ratio in human serum by balancing saturated and polyunsaturated dietary fatty acids. Brandeis Univ. v. East Side Ovens, Inc., No. 11-619 (U.S. Dist. Ct., W.D. Wis., filed September 7, 2011). According to the complaint, the patents (‘497 and ‘192) were issued in 1998 and 2003 and “are directed to fats and fat blends that decrease low-density lipoprotein cholesterol (LDL) and increase high-density lipoprotein cholesterol (HDL) in human serum,” resulting “in significant health benefits.” The university alleges that the defendants’ cookie, cookie dough, and reduced fat biscuit and crescent roll products infringe its patents. The plaintiff seeks injunctive relief, damages, costs, and a “declaration that this is an exceptional case and an award of attorneys’ fees.”
