The Lawsuit claimed that labeling for Blue Buffalo pet foods (the “Products”) was false and deceptive in that it breached the True Blue Promise, which states that the Products contain no chicken/poultry by-product meals, no corn, wheat or soy, and no artificial preservatives.

Blue Buffalo has agreed to pay $32 million to settle the lawsuit.

Consumers eligible for reimbursement must have purchased a Blue Buffalo product in the United States between May 7, 2008 and December 18, 2015. Consumers can receive $5 for each $50 worth of Blue Buffalo products purchased between those dates.

Popchips Inc settles class action lawsuit over mislabeling products

The lawsuit alleges Popchips’ marketing and labeling of popchips brand snack products as an “all natural” and “healthier” food product that contains “no preservatives” and “no artificial flavors or colors” was false and misleading.  Plaintiffs claim that Popchips, deceptively represented the nature of its popchips brand snack products because popchips brand snack products are allegedly highly processed, contain artificial and synthetic ingredients, including ingredients containing genetically modified organisms (GMOs), and contain too much fat to be labeled “healthier.”
