Trader Joe’s Honey Graham Crackers Are Actually Made Out Of White Flour Instead Of Whole Grain Flour
Nationwide retailer Trader Joe’s is being sued in a class action lawsuit for accusations that it misrepresented its Honey Graham Crackers as a product made out of whole grain flour even when it mostly consists of white flour.
Heather Swanberg v. Trader Joe’s Company
In the Trader Joe’s Honey Graham Crackers White Flour Class Action Lawsuit, plaintiff Heather Swanberg contends that the company has taken advantage of the general everyday buyer’s clamor to go for items made out of whole grain due to their higher fiber content and purported health benefits.
In addition, it is said that Trader Joe’s has used marketing techniques such as the dominant placement of its Honey Graham offering’s Graham ingredient in the product’s packaging in a bid to lure in consumers.
Furthermore, Swanberg claims that the retailer takes advantage of its competition with its allegedly deceptive and misleading advertising claims and statements.
According to the Trader Joe’s Honey Graham Crackers White Flour Class Action Lawsuit, TJ’s should be summoned to court to answer different charges like transgressions of the Consumer Fraud and Deceptive Business Practices Act in Illinois and other consumer fraud laws in the country.
Plaintiff Swanberg aims to form and represent a Class group covering Illinois residents who bought Trader Joe’s Honey Graham items thinking they are made out of whole grain flour instead of simply just white flour.
A collective of Subclasses consisting of other like-situated consumers spanning different states is also included in the complainant’s petition.
