Nestle Dismissed From Class Action Lawsuit Against Gerber

Nestle USA, Inc., has been dismissed from a class action lawsuit brought against Gerber for misleading consumers. The lawsuit, filed last year by three prominent consumer advocacy firms, The Stanley Law Group, Bailey & Glasser LLP, and David F. Sugerman, alleges that the packaging for Gerber Graduates Puffs is misleading, implying that the toddler treats are made from healthy fruits and vegetables rather than the flour and sugar that they mostly consist of. The lawsuit was filed in the Superior Court of California for the County of San Francisco. A jury trial has been demanded. Plaintiffs requested Nestle USA's dismissal as a defendant. Judge Curtis Karnow granted the request. Gerber remains a defendant in the ongoing case.

Beaverton Mom Sues Gerber and Nestlé USA

A Beaverton mom has filed a lawsuit and seeks class-action status against Gerber and Nestlé USA, claiming that the maker of baby food is marketing its apple, banana, blueberry, peach and sweet potato Gerber Puffs as nutritious snacks when they aren’t. A container of sweet potato Gerber Graduates Puffs 'prominently touts' pictures of sweet potatoes, but there aren’t any sweet potatoes in the ingredients. 'There are no vegetables whatsoever,' the lawsuit states. 'The only vegetable or fruit-related ingredients are ‘dried apple puree’. Stephen Gardner, a Bend attorney representing Henry, told The Oregonian/OregonLive that the Puffs are equivalent to 'flavored pieces of flour and sugar'. Gerber issued a statement describing the lawsuit as 'frivolous' and 'without merit', saying that Puffs are 'a nutritious snack made with whole grains, vitamins and minerals'. The suit claims that Gerber’s labeling and marketing violate Oregon’s Unlawful Trade Practices Act. The law allows consumers to seek $200 per violation.
