November 2014: Plaintiffs voluntarily dismissed the lawsuit because General Mills agreed to remove the 100% Natural claims from products containing unnatural ingredients. (Bohac et al v. General Mills, Inc., Case No. 12-cv-05280, N. D. CA.). This labeling change also led to the voluntary dismissal of three other lawsuits:

March 2014: A federal judge dismissed some of the claims – including the breach of implied warranties and unjust enrichment claims – in this class-action lawsuit. The remaining claims – including those for violations of consumer protection laws and breach of express warranty – move forward.

November 2013: Plaintiffs amended a class-action lawsuit (which was originally filed in 2012) against General Mills. Specifically, the complaint alleges that the company misleadingly labels Nature Valley products – including Crunchy Granola Bars, Sweet & Salty Nut Granola Bars, Protein Chewy Bars, Granola Thins Crispy Squares, Chewy Trail Mix Bars, Chewy Yogurt Granola Bars – as “100% Natural” when they actually contain unnatural and genetically modified ingredients. (Bohac et al v. General Mills, Inc., Case No. 12-cv-05280, N. D. CA.).
