Quaker Oats Lawsuit Alleges False Advertising
Audet & Partners, LLP is investigating claims that have come to light related to Quaker Oats products being advertised as “100% Natural” and “eco-friendly.” The following Quaker products are alleged to have included false and/or misleading representations as being “100% Natural” and/or “eco-friendly”:
• Quaker Oats Old-Fashioned;
• Quaker Oats Quick 1-Minute; and
• Quaker Steel Cut Oats
These products labeled as “100% Natural Whole Grain” also include packaging containing, by way of example, the following language: “As part of a heart-healthy diet, the soluble fiber in Oatmeal can help reduce cholesterol” and “Get your day started off to a Heart Healthy Start with Whole Grain Oatmeal!”
What Quaker has failed to disclose to consumers was that these products also include a potential cancer-causing pesticide called Glyphosphate. Glyphosphate is not “100% natural,” but to the contrary is a synthetic biocide and probable human carcinogen, that also carries the possibility of additional health-related problems.
If you have purchased and of the Quaker Oats products listed above based, at least in part, on Quaker’s representations that these products were “100% Natural,” you are urged to contact a consumer fraud class action attorney at Audet & Partners, LLP for a free, confidential Quaker Oats lawsuit consultation.
