Robert: Customer sues over Pop-Tarts not having enough strawberries
Published on November 1st, 2021 @ 12:00 PM
An Illinois woman is seeking restitution over false claims of strawberry.
Anita Harris has filed a class action lawsuit against Kellogg’s alleging the marketing for Pop-Tarts is “misleading because they give people the impression the fruit filling contains a greater relative and absolute amount of strawberries than it does.”
The lawsuit also alleges the product’s name, “Frosted Strawberry Toaster Pastries,” is “false, misleading, and deceptive” because the Pop-Tart filling contains a “relatively significant amount of non-strawberry fruit ingredients”. The plaintiff further claims she wanted a “strawberry taste,” but the product failed to deliver “due to the relatively greater amount of pears and apples” in the filling.
Harris is seeking $5 000 000 USD.
Kellogg’s has yet to respond to the claims or the lawsuit.
