False advertising lawsuits in the food and drink space are popping up everywhere:
- In June, Post agreed to a $15m settlement for marketing sugary cereals with healthy claims.
- McCormick is facing a $3m settlement for advertising artificial ingredients as “natural.”
Elsewhere, one lawsuit claims Frito-Lay’s “hint of lime” chips don’t actually contain limes, and another says TGI Fridays’ “onion snacks” have no onions.
