An amicable and mutually-agreeable settlement is often achieved allowing time for manufacturers to deplete label and finished goods inventory, or in the case of food-service establishments; to terminate advertising campaigns and change printed menus and communications media.  Entities reaching such agreements are not listed where non-disclosure is requested in the settlement agreement.
