In January 2020, a class-action lawsuit
was filed against Cooperative Regions of Organic Producer Pools for allegedly misleadingly marketing that the exclusive flavoring ingredient in Organic Valley High Protein Milk Shakes is vanilla when, according to plaintiffs, the ingredients list reveals that the products contain unspecified “Organic Flavor” along with “Organic Fair Trade Vanilla Flavor.” (Collishaw et al v. Cooperative Regions of Organic Producer Pools
, Case No. 20-277, S. D. NY.)
