Camembert makers in row over name

Traditional cheese makers in France plan to take their industrial-scale competitors to court in a row over who can legally call their product Camembert of Normandy.

The small-scale producers say the mass-market companies are misleading consumers with the marketing of their cheese, and they risk killing off authentic camembert in the process.

David Chazan reports from Normandy.
