Marc Reisch, President and Chief Executive Officer of Visant, stated, "We are extremely disappointed with the FTC's decision to challenge this strategic transaction and fundamentally disagree with the basis on which the FTC made its decision. We continue to believe that based on current industry dynamics the combination would not have an adverse effect on competition and that the significant synergies and operating efficiencies from the proposed transaction would contribute to the competitive landscape. However, entering into a protracted litigation with the FTC and the inherent cost and distraction is not in the best interests of our stakeholders."
Yet the study continued by noting, "privacy remains a concern -- 68% of consumers would withhold personal information even if it means losing out on tailored offers."

"Observational studies can't prove cause and effect, but when associations are seen in large populations, and occur in a well established context- cause and effect may reliably be inferred,” states Dr. Katz. He continues, “The findings here- the kind often seen with powerful pharmaceuticals- are robust, and remarkable. They strongly indicate the importance of consuming whole foods, such as walnuts, in the fight against diabetes.”"
