A false advertising class-action lawsuit
was filed against Kellogg in 2016 (and amended
in April 2017) alleging that the company deceptively markets its name brand Raisin Bran, Smart Start, Crunchy Nut, and Nutri-Grain products as healthy, nutritious, and wholesome when, according to the complaint, they contain high amounts of sugar and, as a result, increase the risk of chronic diseases, including diabetes, cardiovascular, and obesity. (Hadley et al v. Kellogg Sales Company
, Case No. 16-cv-4955, N. D. CA.)
