A federal judge in Florida has dismissed a lawsuit brought by consumers challenging Tyson’s use of the term “prime” to describe its pork products. The buyers argued that the labeling was false and misleading because the United States Department of Agriculture does not grade pork products as “prime,” the judge concluded that a reasonable consumer would not be misled by the use of the word.
