SAN FRANCISCO (Legal Newsline) — Two consumers have filed a class action lawsuit against a salad dressing producer, alleging negligent misrepresentation.
Lisa Rosillo and Jesse Kohn filed a complaint, individually and on behalf of all others similarly situated, May 1, in U.S. District Court for the Northern District of California against Annie's Homegrown Inc. alleging false claims regarding the actual contents of its salad dressing products.
According to the complaint, Rosillo and Kohn were damaged monetarily from being misled into purchasing a falsely advertised salad dressing product. The plaintiffs allege Annie's Homegrown labels its salad dressing products as "natural" despite them containing synthetic ingredients.
Rosillo and Kohn seek trial by jury, compensatory and punitive damages, interest, restitution, require the defendant to undertake a corrective advertising campaign, injunctive relief, attorney fees and court costs. They are represented by attorney L. Timothy Fisher of Bursor & Fisher PC in Walnut Creek, California.
