With increasing attention to lawsuits based on “natural” claims, some litigants have also challenged claims that products were “100% pure.”  Many suits have attempted to use findings of chemical or pesticide residue to attack a product’s marketing regarding its purity.

While the Food and Drug Administration is yet to provide clear guidance on the term “natural,” numerous courts have found that a reasonable consumer would not expect such product claims to exclude synthetic molecules in innocuous amounts.
