Ruffles Class Action Lawsuit
Recently, Frito-Lay is being sued for a class action lawsuit regarding their misleadingly labeled Cheddar & Sour Cream Baked Ruffles.
According to Plaintiff Santina LaRocca, the label of the Frito-Lay’s Cheddar & Sour Cream Baked Ruffles failed to disclose the presence of artificial flavors. The false advertising allegedly deceived consumers into purchasing the product at a higher price.

LaRocca said that the growing trend for non-artificial flavors is relevant and applicable in dairy products and food with dairy flavors because “consumers expect dairy products and flavors to contain minimal ingredients and be free from synthetic ingredients and harsh processing due to their association with cows and milk.”
However, Frito-Lay apparently failed to disclose the presence of artificial flavoring on the front of the packaging. LaRocca asserts that the packaging should read “Cheddar and ‘Artificial Sour Cream Flavored’” or some similar words that would confirm the presence of artificial flavoring.
“Reasonable consumers do not expect a product which only uses the term ‘flavored’ to contain artificial flavors, because they would expect the company to tell the whole truth, instead of a half-truth,” the Ruffles class action lawsuit contends.
