Buyers Of Lance Peanut Butter Sandwich Crackers Misled Into Believing False Representations Of The Product’s Grains Content
Snyder’s-Lance is currently being accused in a class action lawsuit of misleading the consumers about the number of refined grains compared to the number of whole grains present in its peanut butter sandwich crackers.
Joseph Vazquez v. Snyder’s-Lance, Inc.
Filed in a New York federal court by complainant Joseph Vazquez, the Snyder’s-Lance Whole Grain Sandwich Crackers Class Action Lawsuit is looking to take the food business in court for its alleged shortcomings.
According to Vazquez, the company behind the peanut butter sandwich crackers products allegedly makes customers believe that its offering contains a significant amount of whole grains.
Advertised as having 11 grams of whole grain in product marketing claims, the peanut butter sandwich crackers, however, has more refined grains than whole grains, but this fact is not properly explained to the everyday consumer via product labeling.
The class action retorts that buyers are then led to buying a product that they think would help them augment their whole grains intake yet actually makes them consume excessive amounts of refined grains as a caveat.
