In November 2020, a class-action lawsuit
was filed against Huhtamaki, Inc. for allegedly falsely marketing Chinet disposable plates and bowls as “eco-friendly” and compostable when, according to the complaint, the products contain substances that do not break down into usable compost. (Hernandez et al v. Huhtamaki, Inc.
, Case No. 20-cv-8155, N.D. Cal.)
