A consumer has filed a putative class action against Kellogg Co. alleging the company produces Mother’s Cookies® with partially hydrogenated oil (PHO), which contains trans fat, in violation of the U.S. Food and Drug Administration’s (FDA’s) ban on the ingredient. Hawkins v. Kellogg Co., No. 16-0147 (S.D. Cal., filed January 21, 2016). The plaintiff asserts FDA “determined that PHO is unsafe for use in food” in 2015, and alleges as a result that Kellogg is prohibited from using the food additive in its cookies. “Today there is no question about the scientific consensus on trans fat,” the complaint argues, in describing several studies examining the alleged human health effects of PHO consumption. For alleged viola- tions of California consumer-protection statutes, nuisance and breach of implied warranty, the plaintiff seeks class certification, restitution, an injunction, a corrective advertising campaign and attorney’s fees.
