Mrs. Smith’s Original Flaky Crust Pies

September 2019: This case was voluntarily dismissed without prejudice, the reasons for which have not been disclosed.

May 2019: This case was transferred to a court in Florida. (Case No. 19-cv-501, M. D. FL.)

April 2019: Plaintiffs filed an amended complaint adding allegations that the company misleadingly markets that the pies contain “No Artificial Sweeteners, Dyes or Flavor” when, according to the amended complaint, it is likely that the products contain some ingredients that act as artificial flavors or colors even though such ingredients are not listed on the product label.

December 2017: A class-action lawsuit was filed against Schwan’s Company for allegedly falsely marketing Mrs. Smith’s Original Flaky Crust Pies. Specifically, plaintiffs claim that product labels represent that pie crusts are made with “Real Butter” when, according to the complaint, the crusts actually contain a “shortening butter blend” composed of vegetable oils. (Leguette et al v. Schwan’s Company et al, Case No. 17-cv-7599, E. D. NY.)
