August 2017: The appeal was voluntarily dismissed, the reasons for which have not been disclosed.

July 2016: ConAgra Foods’s motion to stay the appeal pending the resolution of a Supreme Court case determining whether an appellate court has jurisdiction to review this type of issue, Microsoft Corp. v. Baker, was granted. (Jones v. ConAgra Foods, Inc., Case No. 14-16327, 9th Cir.)

July 2014: After plaintiffs voluntarily dismissed this action, plaintiffs filed a Notice of Appeal regarding the District Court’s decision to deny class certification.

June 2014: A federal judge refused to certify the class in a false lawsuit filed against ConAgra Foods in 2012. The complaint alleges, among other things, that ConAgra Foods misleadingly advertises products – including Hunt’s canned tomato products, PAM Cooking spray products, and Swiss Miss products — as “100% natural” when they actually contain chemical preservatives, synthetic ingredients, and artificial ingredients. The judge did not certify the class finding, among other things, that plaintiffs’ lacked standing (i. e. a proper basis to sue). (Jones et al v. ConAgra Foods, Inc., Case No. 12-cv-01633, N. D. CA.).
