Starbucks named in class action over false and misleading advertising of sour gummy candies

Starbucks

 

According to the complaint, the Starbucks private-label sour gummy candy assortment claims that the package contains Apple, Watermelon, Tangerine, and Lemon-flavored sour candies. The label does not disclose, however, that the Product contains artificial flavors in the form of fumaric acid which is a synthetic petrochemical added to the Products to create the overall “sour” flavor and to simulate and reinforce the Product’s four characteristic fruit flavors.

As alleged, failure to disclose the existence of this artificial flavor violates the law.
