Whole Foods Lawsuit Over Sugar Content in its 365 Everyday Value Plain Greek Yogurt
By: Jared Hagood of The Hagood Law Firm, PLLC

Class action consumer lawsuits has been filed against Whole Foods Market alleging that it understated the amount of sugar in its 365 Everyday Value Plain Greek Yogurt.  The class action lawsuits, which to date have been filed in Pennsylvania, New Jersey, and Massachusetts claim the yogurt was marketed as having only two (2) grams of sugar per serving, when it actually has 11.4 grams of sugar per serving.  Greek yogurt generally has between five and 10 grams of sugar per serving.  Many in the industry were skeptical when Whole Foods claimed that its yogurt only had two (2) grams of sugar per serving. Consumer Reports performed six (6) tests on the yogurt, and discovered the discrepancy between what Whole Foods alleged and the truth.  The Texas-based retailer has stated it is trying to find out how a third party lab it works with to conduct nutritional analysis came up with such different results. The plaintiffs allege in the class action lawsuits that they have been harmed by the increased sugar content in the yogurt and are seeking injunctive, declaratory and monetary relief.
