Tony,

The same article is featured at the San Marzano Imports website (under "News"), and Nick Soccodato, the person mentioned in the article, is the owner of San Marzano Imports and the seller of the LaBella San Marzano brand tomatoes. These are the tomatoes that several of us have been questioning as to their authenticity--that is, whether they are the San Marzano varietal with the DOP designation. The labels for the cans of LaBella tomatoes do not have the DOP certification and serial number, so it is not clear what the tomatoes in the cans really are.
