June 2013: Plaintiffs amended a class-action lawsuit (which was originally filed in 2012) against General Mills. Specifically, the complaint alleges that the company deceptively markets its Nature Valley products – including Nature Valley Chewy Trail Mix Dark Chocolate & Nut Granola Bars, Nature Valley Peanut Butter Granola Thins, Nature Valley Chewy Trail Mix Fruit & Nut Granola Bars, Nature Valley Sweet & Salty Nut Cashew Granola Bars, and Nature Valley Dark Chocolate and Peanut Butter Granola Thins– as “natural” when they actually contain non-natural, highly processed ingredients.
