Chobani Greek Yogurt

March 2016: The Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals vacated the district court’s dismissal of the amended complaint and sent the case back to the district court with an order to stay proceedings until the FDA completes its proceedings regarding the use of the terms “evaporated cane juice” and “natural” in food labeling.

March 2014: After plaintiffs filed an amended complaint in October 2013 and a federal judge dismissed it, plaintiffs filed a Notice of Appeal.

September 2013: A federal district judge dismissed this lawsuit because the plaintiffs did not allege enough facts in their complaint to show that they actually believed the yogurts contained only natural sugars from milk and fruit, and did not contain added sugars or syrups. The judge also stated that the plaintiffs did not allege enough facts to show that they actually relied on the “no sugar added” and “all natural” claims.

May 2012: A class-action lawsuit was filed against Chobani alleging that the company markets its Greek yogurts as all natural when they actually contain artificial ingredients, flavorings, coloring, and chemical preservatives. In addition, plaintiffs claim that the company markets the yogurts as containing “evaporated cane juice” when they actually contains sugar. (Kane v. Chobani, Inc., Case No. 12-cv-02425, N.D. CA.)
