November 2013: Plaintiffs amended a class-action lawsuit (which was originally filed in 2012) against General Mills. Specifically, the complaint alleges that the company misleadingly labels Nature Valley products – including Crunchy Granola Bars, Sweet & Salty Nut Granola Bars, Protein Chewy Bars, Granola Thins Crispy Squares, Chewy Trail Mix Bars, Chewy Yogurt Granola Bars – as “100% Natural” when they actually contain unnatural and genetically modified ingredients.
