Consumers File Suit Against Nestle, The Hershey Co. and Mars Inc

Purchasers of chocolate from Nestle, The Hershey Co. and Mars Inc. have filed three class-action lawsuits against the food companies for allegedly using child labor in the production of their best-selling chocolate candy, including Reese's Peanut Butter Cups(R), Kit Kat(R), Twix(R), MilkyWay(R), Butterfinger(R), BabyRuth(R), M&Ms(R) and many others, according to Hagens Berman. The national class-action law firm filed its California class actions, stating that the three corporations regularly import cocoa beans from suppliers who use child labor, including trafficked and forced child labor. Specifically, Hershey's, Mars and Nestle import cocoa beans from plantations in the Ivory Coast, according to the complaints. The lawsuits state that in violation of California law, Hershey's, Mars and Nestle do not disclose that their suppliers in the Ivory Coast rely on child laborers and instead continue to profit from the child labor that supplies the chocolate sold to American consumers. From 2013 to 2014 more than 1.1 million children in the Ivory Coast were engaged in the most common Worst Forms of Child Labor as recognized by the United Nations, according to the suit, up from 791,181 children from 2008 to 2009. The children subjected to the forced labor allegedly used to make Mars, Hershey's and Nestle chocolate are victims of hazardous work such as that involving dangerous tools, transport of heavy loads and exposure to toxic substances and the compulsory labor of trafficked children. The suits state that such children are trafficked from countries neighboring the Ivory Coast, sold to plantation owners by brokers and smugglers, and forced to work under conditions of physical violence without pay. According to the World Cocoa Foundation, 47% of the total U.S. imports of cocoa beans come from the Ivory Coast.
