Trader Joe’s Chicken
July 2019: A class-action lawsuit was filed alleging that Trader Joe’s All Natural chicken products – including its Boneless Chicken Breasts, Chicken Thighs, and Chicken Wings – contain more retained water than disclosed on the packaging. Specifically, the complaint claims that the labels represent that the products have 5% retained water when, according to plaintiffs, some of the products have as much as 16% retained water.
