A July 9 story,
"Kraft Skids on Management Shake-Up, Altria's Woes," incorrectly said a recent case against
(KFT:NYSE) based on claims its Oreo cookies were unhealthy was "thrown out of court." In fact, according to Stephen Joseph, chief executive and counsel for California-based non-profit BanTransFats.com, which brought the lawsuit, it was voluntarily dismissed following Kraft's announcement of its decision to undertake initiatives to reduce or eliminate trans fats in its cookies and crackers. Joseph said he regards the lawsuit a "total success."
regrets the error.
