Class Action Lawsuit Says Advertised Coffee Servings Aren’t Accurate
A class action lawsuit filed against Kraft Heinz accuses the company of misleading consumers with its Maxwell House serving size and advertised number of servings.
Consumers claim that the coffee products have misleading representations on the serving size and the number of servings contained in the product.

According to the product instructions, one tablespoon of Maxwell House coffee will make one serving of coffee while a half cup or 8 tablespoons of coffee will make 10 servings. The product label also states that 6 fluid ounces of water should be used per 1 tablespoon of coffee.
Based on these serving sizes, Maxwell House products can make between 180 and 210 suggested-strength servings. However, this is far from the truth as consumers have attested that a full container of Maxwell House coffee makes far fewer servings than advertised.
The lawsuit argues that the company could have truthfully and accurately represented the product’s serving size, but has intentionally chosen to do otherwise to increase profits. Because of their deceiving misrepresentations, consumers paid higher than what the product actually costs and are therefore financially injured.
The class action lawsuit claims that as consumers “purchased the Product as a product advertising itself as being capable of brewing specific numbers of 6 fluid ounce cups of coffee, and that was not the case, Plaintiff was damaged in proportion to the servings of coffee not received from each of the Products.”
The class action lawsuit seeks to represent consumers who purchased Maxwell House coffee products in the last four years and seeks actual damages, interest, other equitable relief, court costs, and attorneys’ fees.
