SAN DIEGO (Legal Newsline) – A California couple are alleging that the makers of Pringles chips falsely advertise the ingredients for a particular flavor of chips.
Barry Allred and Mandy C. Allred filed a complaint on behalf of themselves and all others similarly situated and the general public on May 11 in the California Superior Court of San Diego County against Kellogg Co., Kellogg Sales Co., and Pringles LLC alleging false advertising and unfair competition.
According to the complaint, the plaintiffs allege that the defendants' Pringles Salt and Vinegar flavored chips contain additional flavoring ingredients and does not disclose these flavors on the front label. They allege that the defendants completely and unlawfully fail to disclose that the product contains two artificial flavors.
The plaintiffs request a trial by jury and seek disgorgement of profits, restitution, pay damages, order the defendant to engage in a corrective advertising, interest, all legal fees, and any other relief as this court deems just. They are represented by David Elliot of The Elliot Law Firm in San Diego, California.
