Earth's Best: Baby and Toddler Food Products
|Food and Beverage Labeling|
Parents are increasingly aware of the need to provide healthy food for their children, especially at the critical age of less than 2 years old. To make healthy food choices for their children, parents rely on nutritional information on food product labels. Intending to profit from parents’ increasing desire to purchase healthy food for their young children, Defendant misbrands its baby and toddler food products by making nutrient content claims on the product packages that are strictly prohibited by the Food and Drug Administration (“FDA”), and by misleading purchasers into believing that its products are healthier than other products for children under two years of age in order to induce parents into purchasing Defendant’s products. Defendant’s misbranding caused Plaintiff and members of the class to pay a price premium for the products.
Our lawsuit seeks refunds for all purchasers of Earth's Best Baby and Toddler food products that have labels with express nutrient claims. It also seeks an injunction preventing further false advertising.
This case was filed in the United States District Court, Northern District of California on January 26, 2022. Plaintiff filed an amended complaint June 2, 2022.
Who is Covered:
All persons in the State of California who purchased the Products between January 26, 2018 and the present.
