Dairy giant Dannon has confirmed that it is still considering an out-of-court settlement in class actions brought against it for making false and misleading probiotic health claims.

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 that the case is “ongoing”. “Certainly, the possibility of settling out of court continues to be an option,”​ he said.
