The recent win of a San Diego mom in the $3 million class-action lawsuit filed against Nutella means that the Nutella chocolate spread, which is advertised by its company as a nutritious product actually, does not contain similar healthy contents.
The fact came to light when the allegations by a San Diego mother stating presence of dangerous levels of saturated fats and other unhealthy components in the product, won their side in the California court.
The ruling has definitely astonished many people in the region as the case was filed against a big name in industry i. e. Ferrero U. S. A. Inc. The company is actually an affiliate of Nutella's Italian-based parent company.
Mrs. Athena Hohenberg, a San Diego mother, filed lawsuit against Nutella upon finding that the product quality and its contents are not matching the levels showcased by the company's advertisement.
The CBS News reported that the woman discovered 21 grams of sugar, 200 calories and 11 grams of fat (3.5 of which are saturated) in per serving of the chocolate spread.
The lawsuit insisted that a class-action must be taken on the company and it should be ordered to pay a hefty amount for false advertising their product as a nutritious or a healthier one.
The ruling has finally favored the mother’s side and has ordered to pay $4 to every person, who made the purchase of the chocolate spread jar between January 1, 2008 and February 3, 2012 in the United States. The CBS reports are stating a huge criticism over the judge's decision. Moreover, many parents are ridiculing the class-action.
LA Weekly has also reported several comments of people against the action of the mother and her decision to go against the company and its chocolate spread regarding its nutrient content.
