Lawyers fight dismissal request of Frito-Lay in case over cheddar and sour cream chips: Class action lawyers have fired back at Frito-Lay’s allegation that their case over potato chips lacks any evidence according to a report in Legal Newsline. The lawsuit does not allege what artificial flavors are associated with cheddar or sour cream, according to Frito-Lay. Frito-Lay also says the lawsuit is preempted by the Food, Drug & Cosmetic Act because the FDA has already regulated when a product must disclose it has artificial flavors on the front of the package.
