I don't know about the fat part, but I don't know why salt wouldn't qualify as natural. I also have no idea who doesn't know pretzels have salt on them

The statement that "the food industry … has not been able to win dismissal of any of the complaints at an early stage" isn't correct. It is true that it is often more difficult than it should be to get rid of some of these, but motions to dismiss are granted all the time, often for failure to plead the alleged fraud with any particularity. If the statement is referring to a specific group of lawsuits filed in the Northern District, it might be accurate. Otherwise, it isn't.
