Post accused of falsely advertising cereal ingredients not included in products

By Carrie Bradon | May 10, 2019

BROOKLYN —  A customer is suing Post, alleging its cereals falsely advertised ingredients that are not included in the products.

Kenneth Copeland, John Doe, individually and on behalf of all others similarly situated, filed a class action complaint April 26 in U.S. District Court for the Eastern District of New York against Post Consumer Brands LLC, alleging deceptive trade practices, fraud, false advertising, breach of express warranties and unjust enrichment.

Copeland says he purchased cereal and cocoa products manufactured by Post that were false and misleading because the products contain alkalized cocoa, which reduces the acidity of cocoa powder and detracts from the real cocoa flavor. Copeland alleges the Post products contain real cocoa but the cocoa is altered, making the representation false.

Copeland seeks trial by jury, restitution, disgorgement of sums, an order refraining Post from using representations that are false and misleading, monetary damages, interest, treble and punitive damages, attorney fees and court costs and other just and proper relief. The plaintiff is represented by Spencer Sheehan of Sheehan & Associates PC in Great Neck, New York.
