Whole Foods’ Greek yogurt has 6 times more sugar than label claims, says class-action lawsuit


(NaturalNews) Engrossed in yet another legal battle, Whole Foods is being accused of falsely labeling the ingredients in the grocer’s 365 Everyday Value Plain Greek Yogurt, according to a report by Courthouse News Service.

The same lawyers who sued Subway over the lengths of their foot-long sandwiches have filed a lawsuit in Philadelphia Common Pleas Court, claiming that Whole Foods is selling yogurt with nearly six times the sugar listed on the label.

The lawsuit was filed on behalf of Philly residents Carmine Clemente and Samantha Kilgallen, reported Philly.com.

“I find it hard to believe they don’t know what’s in their yogurt,” said Joseph Osefchen, a lawyer employed with the Center City and Marlton, New Jersey, firm DeNittis Osefchen.

“It’s a store brand. Whole Foods makes it, advertises it and makes the label,” he added.

Consumer advocacy groups discovers big discrepancy between the advertised sugar content, and the actual sugar content in Whole Foods 365 Plain Greek Yogurt

In July, Consumer Reports released results they obtained while testing plain Greek yogurts for their taste and nutrition. Nutrition experts noticed that the sugar content in Whole Food’s Plain Greek Yogurt was substantially lower than other brands.

Consumer Reports is published by Consumers Union, an independent, non-profit organization formed in 1936 that’s focused on serving consumers through unbiased product testing, research and advocacy.
