LOS ANGELES (Legal Newsline) - A class action lawsuit has been filed claiming Crystal Light falsely advertises using no artificial ingredients.
Robert Bryce Stewart filed a lawsuit on Feb. 6 in U.S. District Court for the Central District of California against The Kraft Heinz Company, citing negligent misrepresentation and fraud, among others.
The suit alleges that despite the labeling on several products stating they include no artificial flavors, they include malic acid. Malic acid is used to simulate and affect the flavor of the drinks and is considered an artificial flavor, according to the complaint.
The class action suit is seeking monetary and compensatory damages in excess of $5 million plus court costs. She is represented in the case by attorney Reuben Nathan of Nathan & Associates APC in Newport Beach, Calif. The case is being heard by Judge Sam Adams.
