Boxes of Golden Grahams and Honey Nut Cheerios

In September 2019, a class-action lawsuit was filed against General Mills for allegedly deceptively using slack-filled cardboard boxes for its breakfast cereals – including Golden Grahams and Honey Nut Cheerios – to make consumers believe that they are getting more cereal than they actually are. According to the complaint, the boxes of cereals contain approximately 30% empty space. (Gabriel et al v. General Mills, Inc. et al, Case No. 19-cv-8339, C. D. CA.)
