September 2013: A class-action lawsuit was filed against Pacific Foods of Oregon, Inc. for allegedly mislabeling its food products – including Pacific Foods All Natural Ultra Soy Vanilla, Organic Almond Original, Organic Almond Vanilla, and Organic Almond Chocolate non-dairy beverages, as well as Pacific Foods All Natural Poblano Pepper and Corn chowder – under California and federal regulations. Specifically, the plaintiffs claim that the Pacific Foods product labels deceptively state that the products contain “evaporated cane juice” instead of saying they contain “sugar” or “cane syrup.” (Swearingen et al. v. Pacific Foods of Oregon, Inc., Case No. 13-cv-04157, N. D. CA.).
