Smucker's 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, Smuckers prominently labels the front of some of its products, such as the Uncrustables Sandwiches and JIF peanut butter, as containing a specified amount of protein per serving. In truth, however, the Smuckers products do not contain the amount of protein that the labels claim.
Our lawsuit seeks refunds for all purchasers of Smuckers brand products that make protein claims on the front of the product label. It also seeks an injunction preventing further false advertising.
The case was filed on August 20, 2021. Defendant moved to dismiss and Plaintiff opposed. The court has not yet ruled on the pending motion.
Who is Covered:
All persons in the State of California that purchased Smuckers brand products that make protein claims on the front of the product label between August 20, 2017 and the present.
