Mars Flavored Ice Cream Products
September 2015: A class-action lawsuit, which was filed against Mars, Inc. and Mars Chocolate North America, LLC in August 2015 (and transferred to federal court in September 2015), alleges that the companies deceptively label ice cream products, including the Vanilla Flavored, Coffee Flavored, and Vanilla and Chocolate Flavored ice creams.
