A Kansas resident has filed a putative class action in state court against POM Wonderful, LLC, alleging that the company’s claims that its pomegranate products have special health benefits are false, deceptive and misleading. Haynes v. POM Wonderful, LLC, No. CV08720 (Johnson County Dist. Ct., Kan., filed September 29, 2010). Seeking to certify a statewide class of consumers, the plaintiff refers to actions that advertising watchdogs and government agencies have taken against the company, including the recent Federal Trade Commission administrative complaint, after purportedly determining that the company does not have a sufficient scientific basis to make health-related representations about its products. The plaintiff alleges violations of the Kansas Consumer Protection Act and unjust enrichment and seeks damages in excess of $25,000, attorney’s fees and costs.
