Nature's Path Products: Inflated Protein Claims
|Food and Beverage Labeling|
Consumers are increasingly health conscious and, as a result, many consumers seek foods high in protein to support weight loss, exercise, and general fitness, among other reasons. To capitalize on this trend, Defendant prominently claims, on the front of many of its product packages, that they contain a specified amount of protein. For example, Defendant claims "10g PROTEIN” on the label of its Hemp Hearts Granola. In truth, however, the products do not contain the amount of protein that the labels claim.
Our lawsuit seeks refunds for all purchasers of Nature's Path products that make protein claims. It also seeks an injunction preventing further false advertising.
The case was filed on July 2, 2021. Defendant moved to dismiss and Plaintiffs opposed. The Court denied the motion in part and gave Plaintiffs leave to amend. Plaintiffs filed an amended complaint, and Defendant again moved to dismiss. Plaintiffs opposed and filed a motion for leave to file a second amended complaint. The Court granted plaintiffs leave to file a second amended complaint, but the motion to dismiss is still pending.
Who is Covered:
All persons in the State of California who purchased the Nature's Path products with front of the package protein claims between July 2, 2017 and the present.
