General Mills Files False Advertising Suit against Chobani
Jan 30 16
General Mills filed a false advertising suit against Chobani. A federal judge has barred Chobani from continuing an ad campaign that likens Yoplait yogurt to bug spray, a response to General Mills' suit against Chobani for false advertising. Chobani also has been prohibited from continuing a separate but similar ad campaign against Dannon. Both preliminary injunctions against Chobani were issued by David Hurd, a judge for the U.S. District Court of Northern New York. General Mills has demonstrated it could be 'irreparably harmed' by Chobani's ads and that the company would have a 'substantial likelihood of success on the merits of its false advertising claim'. In responding to General Mills and Dannon's lawsuits, Chobani argued that its ad claims about potassium sorbate and sucralose are merely 'puffery' statements of Chobani's own opinion about the superiority of its own natural products. Chobani said it will 'continue its mission' to call on food makers to use natural ingredients. General Mills' suit against Chobani was initially filed in U.S. District Court in Minneapolis but moved to the northern district of New York where litigation between Dannon and Chobani was pending.
