Alcohol labeling rules hit

Published on .

Competitive Enterprise Institute today filed suit challenging Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco & Firearms restrictions on alcohol beverage labeling that bar any health claims. The suit filed in U.S. District Court in Washington contends rules that bar statements that moderate drinking is associated with a lower risk for heart disease are an unconstitutional restriction on free speech. Last year, in a case involving Coors Brewing Co. and BATF labeling restrictions, the U.S. Supreme Court overturned restrictions that had barred brewers from listing the percentage alcohol on beer labels.
