Federal Judge Grants Preliminary Injunction Barring Implementation of Arkansas Labeling Law

A federal judge in Arkansas has granted a preliminary injunction that prevents the state from enforcing a law that bans using terms like “burger” and “sausage” to sell plant-based products against Tofurky while the constitutionality of the law is decided. The plant-based company filed suit against Arkansas in July, arguing that the law is an unconstitutional restriction on commercial speech.
