This month, June 2018, a consumer class action lawsuit was filed against Chicago Bar Company (RXBAR). The RXBAR lawsuit claims that the company represents, misleadingly, the ingredients in both the RXBAR and the RXBAR Kids. More specifically, the RXBAR class action lawsuit complaint alleges that the Chicago Bar Company aims to represent that these bars contain egg whites and “real fruit” when, in fact, RXBAR only bits of the egg white as opposed to the entire thing. Moreover, fruit “infused” flavoring is not real fruit, but instead flavored with sweetening agents, such as apple juice concentrate.
The RXBAR lawsuit states that the products are characterized by their austere principal display panel representations which include the brand name, the number of protein grams, a vertical list of components in the product, along with a number corresponding to the same, a prominent statement disclaiming the presence of harmful, undesirable, less valued ingredients (styled as “No B.S.”), and finally the flavor/variety designation (see below).
