In April 2019, a class-action lawsuit
was filed against Walmart for allegedly misleadingly marketing its Parent’s Choice Pediatric Shake as being “Naturally Flavored” and containing no “Synthetic Color, Flavor or Sweeteners” when, according to plaintiffs, the shakes contain unnatural and synthetic ingredients, as well as sweeteners and sugars. Plaintiffs also claim that the shakes are marketed as providing “Balanced Nutrition to Help Kids Thrive” when, according to plaintiffs, they do not contain the nutrients that children need.
