Quaker Oats Products
December 2018: A class-action lawsuit was filed against PepsiCo and The Quaker Oats Company for allegedly falsely advertising that Quaker Oats products – including Quaker Dinosaur Eggs – Brown Sugar Instant Oatmeal, Quaker Steel Cut Oats, Quaker Simply Granola Oats, Honey, Raisins & Almonds, Quaker Real Medleys Super Grains Banana Walnut, Quaker Chewy Chocolate Chip, Quaker Chewy Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip, and others – are healthy when, according to plaintiffs, testing shows that the products contain a probable carcinogen glyphosate. (Brandon et al v. PepsiCo, Inc. and The Quaker Oats Company, Case No. 18-cv-8234, N.D. Ill.)
