In August 2020, a class-action lawsuit
was filed against The Kroger Company for allegedly misleadingly marketing Kroger’s Just Fruit Spreadable Fruit products as containing only the fruit identified on the front label when, according to plaintiffs, the ingredients list on the back reveals that the product contains more “fruit syrup” than fruit. Plaintiffs also claim that the product contains other sweeteners, added sugars and additives. (Vitort et al v The Kroger Company et al
, Case No. 20-cv-1317, D. Ore.)
