The Lawsuit alleges that the packaging of certain Van’s frozen breakfast products was inaccurate in that it led purchasers to believe that the products were “all natural”, “totally natural,” and/or “naturally delicious” (and/or any term substantially similar thereto on the labeling indicating that the products were all natural), when in fact they included a synthetic ingredient.
Van’s disagrees with the Lawsuit but settled for up to an aggregate amount of $9,000,000.
