In suit for restitution and injunctive relief under the unfair competition law and the false advertising law, judgment for plaintiff enjoining defendants' use of inaccurate labels, and also ordering them to allow retailers and distributors to return mislabeled product for either a refund or replacement, is vacated and remanded in light of recent case law to consider whether plaintiff should be permitted to amend the complaint to plead facts satisfying the standing requirements under Proposition 64.
