On December 13, 2006, the California Supreme Court granted review in Farm Raised Salmon Cases, no. S147171. The case raises the following issue:
Does the Federal Food, Drug, and Cosmetic Act (21 U.S.C. § 301 et seq.) impliedly preempt plaintiffs’ state law claims against defendants for deceptive marketing of food products by failing to disclose that farmed salmon sold in their stores contains artificial coloring?
