New Lawsuit Takes Aim At Fake “Blueberries” In Cereal, Baked Goods

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 contact@finkelsteinthompson.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.

The past tense of "mislead" is "misled."

It's a common error that would have been noticed by a COPY EDITOR. You should hire at least one for this site. Spell check really doesn't cut it.

Disgusting and despicable

The wild blueberries that are hand picked are tasty and marvellous and certainly not in cereal boxes!

Again, stay away from processed foods. If it is processed, how can it possible be "real". The blueberry one was pretty simple - how do you put real blueberries in a box and then have them sit on the shelves in grocery stores for weeks without having them rot?

When you can smell "blueberries" from across the room, they are probably not blueberries.

we shouldn't have to assume that everything is a lie.

Who would ever believe that a cereal contains real blueberries? Maybe a small child! Obviously, all those 'blueberries' are chemical flavours!
