In Re: Fairlife Milk Products Marketing and Sales Practices Litigation - STIPULATED INJUNCTION


A federal judge in Illinois granted a $21 million settlement, ending multidistrict class action litigation that accused milk companies of falsely marketing milk as originating from humanely treated cows. The judge also signed off on a stipulated injunction which requires milk makers selling to Fairlife LLC to undergo annual audits of their farms, over the next three years, to ensure cattle welfare. The injunction further mandates employee training on animal handling and requires that farm suppliers bar hiring of individuals with histories of animal abuse or cruelty.
