Nestle’s “No GMO Ingredients” Certification

In July 2018, a class-action lawsuit was filed against Nestle USA for allegedly misleadingly marketing that an independent third party certifies products – including Lean Cuisine Marketplace frozen dinners and Coffee-Mate Natural Bliss creamers – as containing “No GMO Ingredients” when, according to the plaintiffs, the certification is not from an independent, third party and was actually created by Nestle to use as a way to promote products. Plaintiffs also claim that the company misleadingly markets that products do not contain GMOs even though many of the products are derived from GMOs. For example, the dairy in its products comes from cows fed GMO grains. (Latiff et al v. Nestle USA, Inc., Case No. 18-cv-6503, C. D. CA.)
