Jonathan Havens, chair of the Firm’s Food and Beverage Practice and co-chair of the Cannabis Law Practice, is quoted in this Law360 article. Jonathan discusses a recent scenario involving makeup company Claire’s and the FDA wherein Claire’s refused to comply with the FDA’s recommendation.

It’s speculated that the FDA went public with this controversy to shine a light on its limited oversight abilities.  

"The FDA I think is really saying to Congress, look, this is a problem, or we think it's a problem, but we don't have the authority to really do anything about it until you delegate additional authority to us, which you haven't done since the 1930s," said Jonathan
