In March 2020, a class-action lawsuit
was filed against Cuisine Solutions for allegedly falsely marketing that one serving of Sous-Vide Oatmeal Bites contains one percent of the Daily Reference Value (DRV) of carbohydrates when, according to plaintiffs, the product contains more than one percent of the DRV of carbohydrates based on federal regulations, which state that the DRV of carbohydrates is 275 grams for a daily caloric intake of 2000 calories (meaning that one percent of the DRV is 2.75 grams). Plaintiffs claim that Sous-Vide Oatmeal Bites contains 41 grams of carbohydrates. (Smith et al v. Cuisine Solutions, Inc.
, Case No. 20-cv-267, E.D. Va.)
