Recently, a consumer class action was filed against New England Coffee Company. The New England Coffee lawsuit states that the company allegedly used misleading marketing gimmicks in accordance with its Hazelnut Crème Coffee. The complaint states that New England Coffee Company claimed that this item contained hazelnuts when, in fact, the coffee does not contain any hazelnuts but instead other artificial and natural ingredients. Here’s what we know about the New England Coffee class action lawsuit:
The New England Coffee lawsuit complaint states that by law, any food which is expected to contain its characterizing ingredient, but does not, and instead is flavored, must take that disclosure to consumers on the front of its packaging. Failure to do so misleads reasonable consumers into believing they are purchasing an item with qualities it does not have, and is in clear violation of the law.
