France has accused more than 100 companies, including units of Nestlé SA, of colluding not to disclose information to consumers about the presence of a chemical in food packaging that some scientists say could be harmful.
The French competition authority late Tuesday said it had sent a statement of objections, a kind of indictment, to 101 companies and 14 trade associations alleging that they had “agreed not to communicate on the presence or on the composition of certain materials in contact with food, to the detriment of consumers.”
