In March 2020, a class-action lawsuit
was filed against Blue Diamond Growers for allegedly misleadingly marketing that the flavor in its Smokehouse Almonds comes from being smoked (or cooked) over a fire of wood chips that provide food with the flavor of the type of wood when, according to plaintiffs, the product is not actually smoked but rather contains added “Natural Hickory Smoke Flavor.” (Colpitts et al v. Blue Diamond Growers
, Case No. 20-cv-2487, S.D.N.Y.)
