In February 2021, a class-action lawsuit
was filed against Cape Cod Potato Chips Company for allegedly falsely advertising that its Sea Salt & Vinegar Kettle Cooked Potato Chips contain “No Artificial Flavors, Colors or Preservatives” when, according to plaintiffs, the chips contain two artificial flavoring ingredients (malic acid and citric acid). Plaintiffs also claim that the chips do not contain enough vinegar to flavor them. (Schoonmaker et al v. Cape Cod Potato Chips Company, LLC
, Case No. 21-cv-1224, S.D.N.Y.)
