   Kraft Wins Battle Over Cracker Barrel Label, For Now
by Staff Reporter, Chicago Tribune
Posted: Monday, November 18, 2013 at 3:30PM EST

Kraft Foods has prevailed, at least so far, in the battle over the Cracker Barrel label.

The issue before the U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals was whether Cracker Barrel Old Country Store should be prohibited from marketing a line of meat under its name because it could be confused with Kraft's line of Cracker Barrel cheese.

In an opinion written by Judge Richard Posner, a three-judge panel ruled today that a ban should remain in place while the two companies fight the issue out in court. Kraft sued Cracker Barrel Old Country Store in January, claiming trademark infringement.

Kraft has been selling Cracker Barrel cheese for about 60 years, according to the lawsuit. The 620-strong restaurant chain Cracker Barrel Old Country Store was founded in 1969.
