Barry Allred and Mandy C. Allred filed a complaint, individually and on behalf of all others similarly situated and the general public, July 3 in U.S. District Court for the Southern District of California against Frito-Lay North America Inc. and Frito-Lay inc., alleging they made false claims regarding their products.
