PART I — GENERAL PROVISIONS
768.37 — Limitation on civil liability arising from long-term consumption of food and nonalcoholic beverages.
768.37 Limitation on civil liability arising from long-term consumption of food and nonalcoholic beverages.—No manufacturer, distributor, or seller of foods or nonalcoholic beverages intended for human consumption shall be subject to civil liability for personal injury or wrongful death to the extent such liability is premised upon a person s weight gain or obesity, or a health condition related to weight gain or obesity, resulting from the person s long-term consumption of such foods or nonalcoholic beverages. For purposes of this section, the term long-term means the cumulative effect of multiple instances over a period of time and not the effect of a single or isolated instance. Such limitation on civil liability shall not bar a claim for damages if otherwise available under any other provision of law against a manufacturer, distributor, or seller of foods or nonalcoholic beverages if such manufacturer, distributor, or seller has failed to provide nutritional content information as required by any applicable state or federal statute or regulation, or has provided materially false or misleading information to the public.
