Dairy Companies Sue Trader Joe's over Ended Contracts
Jul 12 14
Two dairy companies sued Trader Joe's this month for allegedly coercing suppliers to end their contracts with them and to instead sell directly to the grocery chain at a lower price. The plaintiffs, Natural Dairy Products and Dairy Smart Inc., filed a lawsuit in Los Angeles Superior Court this month, accusing Trader Joe 's of intentional interference with contractual and prospective economic relations. Until last year the two companies acted as middlemen for Trader Joe's dairy products. Natural Dairy Products arranged contracts with dairy manufacturers and suppliers, including Foster Farms' ice cream division, Crystal Creamery, and addressed quality control for goods such as ice cream that it sold to Trader Joe's from suppliers. Dairy Smart acted as a broker for Trader Joe's yogurt, cottage cheese and other products.
Made in the USA Foundation Sues to Protect Consumer's Right to Know Under the Country of Origin Labeling Act
Jul 1 14
Made in USA Foundation Chairman, Joel D. Joseph filed a lawsuit in the County of Los Angeles Superior Court of the State of California against Trader Joe's Company (DOC # BC 543455) requesting an Injunction against the company, and alleging they are selling meat and produce to consumers with 'country of origin' labels that are outright misleading and confusing. Mr. Joseph filed the lawsuit after shopping at Trader Joe's and seeing labels improperly and incorrectly labeled with multiple country of origin designations and provides exhibits within his lawsuit showing the multiple country of origins on labels for spinach, lettuce, ground beef and rib eye steak that is not compliant with United States Department of Agriculture requirements and the U.S. Country of Origin Act (COOL). Nationwide, consumers are increasingly at risk to foodborne illnesses like e-coli and mad cow disease that are rampant in certain countries. Consumers may want to avoid food from certain countries and with Trader Joe's misleading and confusing labeling with multiple countries listed on meat and produce, it's almost impossible for consumers to make informed, intelligent choices to protect their health and their family's health.
