A few months ago, Care2 reported on an investigation that exposed the deceptive chemical ingredients and dishonest marketing of “blueberry” products from big-name food and cereal companies.
Now it seems that this independent investigation has sparked a legitimate lawsuit.
National law firm Finkelstein Thompson recently announced that it is seeking public input from those that may have been mislead by these products.
The firm will conduct an investigation into cereals, bagels, muffins and other common food products that depict blueberries and/or represent that the product contains blueberries on the packaging when in reality, the products do not contain real blueberries, or contain only small traces or derivatives of real blueberries.
Products of particular interest to the investigation include:
Target/Market Pantry Blueberry Bagels
Kellogg’s Frosted Mini-Wheats, and Blueberry Muffins
General Mills “Total Blueberry Pomegranate” Cereal
If you purchased any of the above products or other food products which you believed contained real blueberries, but did not, or only included small traces or derivatives of real blueberries, and are interested in discussing your rights, or have information relating to this investigation, you’re invited to contact Finkelstein Thompson’s San Francisco office at (877) 800-1450 or by email at email@example.com.
Because of the broken, deceptive, low-quality nature of our food system, the number of possible plaintiffs is likely to number in the millions.
