Brookside Dark Chocolate Products

November 2019: A federal judge granted summary judgment in favor of Hershey concluding that two of the named plaintiffs did not claim that they relied on the alleged misleading representations in making their purchasing decisions, and the third named plaintiff’s injury was not caused by the alleged misleading representations.

April 2019: Plaintiffs filed an amended complaint similarly alleging that the company misleadingly advertises that Brookside Dark Chocolate products contain “No Artificial Flavors” when, according to the complaint, the products contain an artificial flavoring ingredient (d-l malic acid).

October 2018: A class-action lawsuit was filed against The Hershey Company for allegedly falsely advertising that Brookside Dark Chocolate products are flavored only with natural ingredients when, according to the complaint, the products contain the artificial flavor malic acid. (Clark et al v. The Hershey Company, Case No. 18-cv-6113, N. D. CA.)
