In September 2020, a class-action lawsuit
was filed against Kellogg Sales Company for allegedly misleadingly marketing that the only fruit ingredient in Frosted Strawberry Pop-Tarts is strawberries when, according to plaintiffs, the ingredients list reveals that the fruit filling also contains pears and apples. The complaint also claims that the product contains a coloring ingredient (red 40) to make consumers think it contains more strawberries than it actually does. (Brown et al v. Kellogg Sales Company
, Case No. 20-cv-7283, S.D.N.Y.)
