Henry Noye Discusses Skittles Lawsuit in Milling & Banking News
Henry Noye, a partner and member of Obermayer’s Catastrophic Loss Group, was recently quoted in Milling & Banking News. In the article, titled “Alternatives for titanium dioxide, dairy ingredients enter market,” published on August 9, 2022, Henry discusses the recent class-action lawsuit against Mars, Inc., McLean, Va. The lawsuit alleges Skittles are unfit for human consumption because they contain titanium dioxide (TiO2). The lawsuit alleges Mars violated California’s Consumers Legal Remedies Act and seeks a trial by jury, but the FDA

“I don’t see any allegations that the main plaintiff actually suffered any harm from the Skittles,” Henry said. “The harm was based on the contention TiO2 makes the product unsafe. I don’t know if there is going to be science to support that.”
