Ferrero USA threatens class-action suit
“Nutella & Go!” contains only half as much nut nougat cream as the packaging suggests, says an American who is suing the confectionery manufacturer Ferrero USA.
The plaintiff Abraham Drucker claims to have been deceived by “Nutella & Go!” products in the US state of California. The small packages with bread or lye embroidery contain only half as much Nutella as the packaging suggests. He therefore demands injunctive relief and damages from Ferrero USA. He threatens a class-action lawsuit because other consumers could join the process. The complaint is before the Lebensmittel Zeitung. It refers to diverse Internet evaluations of customers, who likewise see themselves deceived. Ferrero rejects the accusations in the statement of defence.
