Sometimes I wonder what lawyers who file class action lawsuits are thinking. You may have already heard about the latest class action that just leaves me wondering: a lawsuit has been filed alleging that calling Greek yogurt, Greek yogurt, is misleading because it is not made in Greece.
This post about it, on the blog at the Heritage Foundation website, reported a retort that I had not seen, from a spokesperson for the yogurt maker that is the target of the lawsuit:
“[L]ike English muffins and French fries, Greek yogurt is a product description about how we authentically make our yogurt and not about where we make our yogurt in Upstate New York and Idaho….”
As they used to say where I come from, “Well, duh!”
A few other good examples from the comments to that post: Canadian bacon, French toast, Italian ice, Swiss cheese….
