A California federal court has announced a favorable ruling for plaintiffs seeking to establish that Hain’s Avalon Organics® line violated California’s consumer protection laws by labeling its products “organic” when they contained less than 70 percent organic ingredients. CeleBrown v. Hain stial Grp., No. 11-3082 (N.D. Cal., order entered May 26, 2015). The court found that the alleged misrepresentations, if true, would violate the California Organic Products Act (COPA), which would create a presumption of classwide reliance under the state consumer protection act; further, as a matter of law, “violations of COPA are ‘material’ misrepresentations under the UCL.” Additional information on previous rulings in the case appear in Issues 16 and 20 of this Report.
