Haagen-Daz Vanilla Ice Cream Bars Do Not Contain Cocoa Butter – Class Action
An Illinois class action lawsuit is accusing Dreyer’s Grand Ice Cream, Inc. of purposely substituting vegetable oil in the ingredients of its Haagen-Daz vanilla milk chocolate bars instead of cocoa butter, which ends up misleading consumers.
Plaintiff Files Lawsuit Against Dreyer’s Grand Ice Cream
According to the latest reports, complainant Patricia Zurliene filed a class action suit against Dreyer’s Grand Ice Cream, Inc. after they reportedly tricked customers into thinking that they use cocoa butter for their vanilla milk chocolate ice cream bars.
Zurliene argued that the ice cream company uses an ingredient that is known to be not present in natural chocolate products. Coconut oil, which she identified, was reported to be included in the product’s ingredients list.
Furthermore, she claimed that she made purchases of Haagen-Daz Vanilla Milk Chocolate Products, believing the company’s different marketing strategies and claims.
Zurliene reported that the company used statements such as ‘rich milk chocolate’ and the like. Alongside that, Dreyer’s Grand Ice Cream, Inc. also reportedly included suggestive imagery to entice customers into buying their product.
Customers Allegedly Tricked By Ice Cream Company
The plaintiff retorted that had she and others have known about the deliberate move made by Dreyer’s Grand Ice Cream to hide the truth, they would not have paid extra money for the product.
Zurliene added that not only were they asked to pay more, but they were also left to deal with the possible negative consequences to one’s health brought upon by coconut oil.
She detailed that vegetable oils are known to have trans-fats that are bad for the blood vessels and are regarded to be a major factor in increased rates of heart diseases.
