In my previous life, I have a great deal of experience dealing with regulators.  While I have had limited dealings with the FDA, I think the kind of approach Nestle is taking (if the article is accurate) is not very smart.

My experience is that you must develop partnerships with your regulators so problems can be solved together.  Making life difficult for them will only come back to haunt you later.
