Would anyone happen to know why my BRAND field is coming up all warnings since Oct 1st?  It was fine until then, now all of them are slowly erroring out in google search.  And YES my brand is filled in as well.

Same problem as well. It started after updating to the 2.0 theme.

I found a solution. I'm not sure why search console is suddenly acknowledging this error and I'm not sure if my file always had the wrong code or if google made a recent update. According to google the the code within the product structured data file should read 

"brand": {
        "@type": "Brand",
        "name": "ACME"
      },

I checked in my file and indeed it was wrong. It read...

"brand": {
"@type": "Thing",
"name": {{ product.vendor | json }}
},

So I simply changed the word "Thing" to "Brand" and its now fixed.

Thank you for the solution. Could you please explain where I can find the product structured data file?

(For me) the code can be found in a Snippet file called product__structured-data.liquid
