The Dannon Company, Inc. Key Developments

Chobani, LLC Files an Action Against the Dannon Company, Inc. in the United States District Court Northern District of New York

Chobani, LLC (Chobani) announced that it has filed an action against The Dannon Company, Inc. (Dannon) in the United States District Court Northern District of New York following statements made by Dannon in response to certain Chobani advertising campaigns. Chobani is seeking a declaration from the Court that Chobani's advertising for its Chobani Simply 100® Greek Yogurt products is not false, misleading, disparaging or deceptive and that Chobani's reliance on the USDA nutrient database to support its claims that its Greek Yogurt contains substantially less sugar than regular yogurt are not false or misleading. Chobani launched its new campaign for Chobani Simply 100 Greek Yogurt (the Simply 100 campaign) on January 6, 2016, to help consumers make informed decisions about their food choices, including the choice between natural sweeteners and artificial sweeteners. The campaign notes that sucralose, an artificial sweetener found in Dannon Light & Fit Greek Yogurt, is processed with added chlorine, which prevents sucralose from being broken own into the body for energy, according to the FDA. After the launch of the Simply 100 Campaign, counsel for Dannon sent a letter to Chobani and demanded Chobani immediately discontinue the Simply 100 Campaign.
