In March 2020, a class-action lawsuit
was filed against Blue Diamond Growers for allegedly misleadingly marketing that Almond Breeze Almondmilk Coconutmilk Blend beverages are made using “Vanilla With Other Natural Flavors” when, according to the plaintiffs, the ingredients list does not include a vanilla ingredient and instead lists unspecified “Natural Flavors.” (Lamonakis et al v. Blue Diamond Growers
, Case No. 20-cv-1347, E.D.N.Y.)
