January 2020: A state court judge granted final approval of the settlement agreement.

March 2019: A state court judge preliminarily approved a proposed settlement agreement that would provide class members with $1 refunds for each product purchased (class members who do not have proof of purchase are limited to ten products). The company also agreed to stop using the term “natural” on labels to describe products that contain GMO, synthetic, and artificial ingredients; to refrain from labeling certain products as “Protein Packed,” “Heart Healthy,” and having “No Added Preservatives”; to stop using the phrase “Extra Goodness” to characterize the level of nutrients in products, and to only use the “No Added Sugar” label when certain requirements are met. A final fairness hearing is scheduled for January 14, 2020. For more information, go to https://www.snacksettlement.com/.

2015: Plaintiffs filed a Consolidated Class Action Complaint that combines two cases against Good Health Natural Products (Tran v. Good Health and Moran and Marshall v. Good Health). The complaint alleges that the company misleadingly advertises snacks as being natural when, according to plaintiffs, they contain synthetic, artificial, and highly-processed ingredients, and chemical preservatives. The complaint also claims that the company falsely advertises some snacks as “healthy,” “wholesome,” and “made with whole wheat” and uses improper comparisons about the amount of fat on product labels. (Tran, Moran, Marshall et al v. Good Health Natural Products, Inc., Case Nos. BC561427, BC588986, California State Court – Los Angeles)
