Voortman Cookie Wafers
April 2019: A class-action lawsuit was filed against Swander Pace Capital for allegedly falsely marketing that its Voortman cookie wafers are:
- “Baked With Real Cocoa” when, according to plaintiffs, the wafers actually contain “Cocoa Processed with Alkali,”
- “Baked With Real Fruit” when, according to the complaint, the wafers actually contain “dried fruit,” and
- “Baked With Real Vanilla” when, according to plaintiffs, the ingredients list shows that the wafters contain “natural flavor” instead of vanilla.
