What to Know: Kroger’s Just Fruit Spread Class Action Lawsuit
The recent Kroger Just Fruit Class Action was filed against The Kroger Company for allegedly misleading consumers by marketing their Kroger’s Just Fruit Spreadable Fruit products as containing only the fruit identified on the front label.
Consumers claim that The Kroger Company falsely advertised its Just Fruit Spread as its ingredients listed on the back actually reveals that it contains more “fruit syrup” than actual fruit!
Aside from that, the consumers also claim that the product contains other sweeteners, added sugars, and additives, which contradicts the label “Spreadable Fruit.”
The case can be found under the name: Vitort et al v The Kroger Company et al, Case No. 20-cv-1317, D. Ore.

Here’s what we know about Kroger’s Just Fruit Spread Class Action:
The Kroger’s Just Fruit Class Action Lawsuit claims that The Kroger Company “advertised and marketed the Product as comprising ‘just fruit’; namely, the fruit flavor identified on the front label. The front label further describes the product as ‘spreadable fruit’, further reinforcing the message that the Product was just that. Despite labeling and advertising the Product as being ‘Just Fruit’, the Product actually contains large amounts of added sugars, and additives such as ‘pectin,’ ‘calcium citrate,’ ‘apple juice concentrate,’ and ‘citric acid’.”
Further, as the ingredients list (featured below) demonstrates, the number one ingredient in the Product is actually fruit syrup, and most of the Product’s sugar content derives from “Added Sugars.”
Reasonable consumers, like Plaintiff, have suffered an ascertainable loss of money, measured by the difference between the price paid for a product made of “Just Fruit” and the lower market value of a product that is made primarily of sugary fruit syrup. As a result of Defendant’s illegal conduct, the purchase price of the Product was greater than its objective market value.”
