Boxes of Raisinets
February 2017: Plaintiffs in the Hawkins case filed an amended complaint alleging that boxes of Raisinets are misleadingly 45% empty space.
January 2017: A class-action lawsuit was filed against Nestlé for allegedly deceptively underfilling boxes of milk chocolate and dark chocolate Raisinets®. Specifically, the complaint alleges that the company uses opaque boxes that have 40% empty space. (Hafer et al v. Nestlé U.S.A., Inc., Case No. 17-cv-34, C. D. CA.)
The same month, another class-action lawsuit filed against Nestlé in 2014 for its deceptive packaging of Raisinets was transferred to federal court. (Hawkins et al v. Nestle U.S.A., Inc., Case No. 17-cv-205, E. D. MO.)
When a complaint is dismissed without prejudice, an amended version of the complaint can be refiled.
