In June 2018, a class-action lawsuit
was filed against Chicago Bar Company for allegedly misleadingly representing the ingredients in RXBAR and RXBAR Kids. Specifically, the complaint alleges that the company misleadingly represents that the bars contain egg whites and “real fruit” when, according to the plaintiffs, the company uses only portions of egg whites instead of entire egg whites and fruit “infused” or flavored with sweetening agents, such as apple juice concentrate. (Pizzirusso et al v. Chicago Bar Company, LLC
, Case No. 18-cv-3529, E.D.N.Y.)
