Nestlé Eskimo Pie
January 2014: A class-action lawsuit was filed against Nestlé for allegedly misbranding its Eskimo Pie products. Among other things, plaintiffs claim that the company misleadingly uses the label “No Sugar Added” without adequately disclosing that the product contains other sweeteners and is not low in calories, as required by federal regulations. (Belli et al v. Nestlé USA, Inc., Case No. 14-cv-00283, N. D. CA.).
