Pepperidge Farm has been named in a class action suit that claims the company misleads consumers by using the word natural as this product contains GMOs.
While consumers preferring natural foods might not be purchasing any processed items sold by Pepperidge Farms or any other group, the Natural Cheddar Goldfish® Crackers sold by Pepperidge Farms might be anything but natural.
The following details were found on Real Pharmacy:
Pepperidge Farm markets, advertises, sells and distributes “Natural” Cheddar Goldfish® Crackers.
According to the complaint, Defendant made and continues to make false and misleading claims regarding its representation that the Product is “Natural.” Defendant has mistakenly or misleadingly represented that the Product is “Natural,” when in fact, it is not, because it contains bio-engineered food, more commonly known as Genetically Modified Organisms (“GMOs”) in the form of GMO soy and/or soy derivatives.
As alleged, Defendant’s “Natural” statement prominently displayed on the Product’s packaging and/or labeling is false, misleading, and likely to deceive reasonable consumers, such as Plaintiff and members of the Class, because the Product is not “Natural,” due to the presence of soybean oil in the Product.
