Strawberry Pop-Tarts don’t contain enough strawberries
(WJW) – A lawsuit against Kellogg’s claims about how the company markets its Strawberry Pop-Tarts is misleading.
Anita Harris is suing the breakfast food giant, alleging that the fruit filling on Kellogg’s whole grain frosted strawberry toaster pastries is mostly other fruits, several reports say. The product’s nutrition label actually shows the pastries to be heavier on pears and apples than strawberries, reports TMZ.
In the lawsuit, Harris says the red coloring of Pop-Tarts gives the “false impression” that they contain more strawberries than they actually contain.
And for that, she says the damage exceeds $ 5 million. She also wants to see Pop-Tarts labeled more accurately.
“Whether a pastry contains all strawberries or just strawberries… this is the basic information on the front label that consumers rely on to make quick decisions at the grocery store,” the lawsuit, obtained by United States today, bed. “Strawberries are the characterizing ingredient of the Product… (consumers) believe that they are present in greater quantities than they are.”
Kellogg said The hill he does not comment on the ongoing trial.
