Product Misrepresentation And False Advertising Accusations Plague Baby Food Maker
According to the Gerber Non-GMO Food Class Action Lawsuit, the company’s baby food offerings are allegedly misrepresented.
Filed by complainant Faith Norman, the class action argues that Gerber Baby Foods are falsely advertised as non-genetically modified organisms (non-GMO).
They are made out of ingredients that consist of GMO crops. In addition, it is said that the dairy and protein products used in the affected baby foods are believed to have been sourced from livestock that is fed with GMO feeds.
Other ingredients that are found in the said infant products are reportedly synthesized in a laboratory by the company.
Norman argues that Gerber Products Company purposely falsely labels its baby foods to entice customers into thinking that they are buying a healthy product.
It is believed that a large majority of consumers have aligned themselves with companies that offer non-GMO products in the name of better health.
