Red Hot MDL Action

The JPML has issued [PDF] its schedule for the July 27 hearing in Chicago; as usual, some interesting items.

The panel will hear argument on consolidation of the McDonald's french fry litigation (see this entry on the subject).  This is not obesity litigation; it's the presence of gluten or wheat in french fries.  If you want to see a complaint from the underlying litigation: Download McGluten.pdf [PDF].  At least that complaint does allege injury:
Gluten

The Bausch & Lomb products litigation is also on the docket, as is Fosamax and Actonel.
