In March 2019, a class-action lawsuit
was filed against The Hain Celestial Group for allegedly deceptively making health and wellness claims about Coconut Dream (a drink made up of coconut oil and water) – including that it is a “Cholesterol Free Food” – when, according to the complaint, the amount of saturated fat in the product negatively affects health and increases the risk of cardiovascular disease and strokes, among other things.

, Case No. 19-cv-433, S. D. CA.)
