A second amended complaint has been filed in a putative nationwide class action alleging that The Hain Celestial Group’s food and beverage product labels render their products misbranded and further mislead consumers because they use the terms “No Trans Fat,” “Evaporated Cane Juice” or “All Natural” in violation of state law. Smedt v. The Hain Celestial Group, Inc., No. 12-3029 (U.S. Dist. Ct., filed August 30, 2013). Details about the court ruling dismissing the claims with leave to amend appear in Issue 495 of this Update. The plaintiff has omitted any claims that the company’s Website misled consumers and has otherwise attempted to address the court’s concerns about ambiguous fraud allegations in her initial pleadings.
