Earlier this year, the firm reportedly asked a court to stay a pending complaint against its probiotic products including Activia, Activia Lite and DanActive.
At the time, Dannon would not confirm that it was seeking an out-of-court settlement. However, David Ackerman of law firm Bingham McCutchen, which represents Dannon, said in a court filing: "The parties to this and other similar cases have reached a tentative nationwide class-action settlement contingent upon the occurrence of several events."
Dannon spokesperson Michael Neuwirth recently told NutraIngredients-USA.com that the case is “ongoing”. “Certainly, the possibility of settling out of court continues to be an option,” he said.
