Atkins Nutritionals Settlement
The lawsuits allege that Atkins Nutritionals’ representations related to its labeling, marketing, advertising, and sales of its products that contained any sugar alcohol (including but not limited to maltitol) or polyol (including but not limited to glycerin) were unfair, deceptive, and/or unlawful because, according to the plaintiffs, Atkins Nutritionals’ statement that sugar alcohols have a minimal impact on blood sugar is not accurate.
Atkins Nutritionals disputes Plaintiffs’ allegations, denies all liability to Plaintiffs and the class, and has asserted numerous defenses to these lawsuits. No court has found that Atkins Nutritionals has violated the law in any way.
The Court did not decide in favor of Plaintiffs or Atkins Nutritionals. Instead, both sides agreed to a settlement. That way, they avoid the cost and risks of a trial, the people affected will get injunctive relief, and eligible customers will receive compensation.
