June 2015: A federal judge dismissed the “low sodium” claims and stayed the sugar claims pending the outcome in related appeals.
February 2013: A class-action lawsuit was filed against Nature’s Path Foods Inc. for deceptively marketing its food products. Specifically, the complaint alleges, among other things, that the company misleadingly lists “evaporated cane juice” rather than “sugar” as an ingredient, and falsely labels certain products as “low sodium.” (Plaintiffs filed an amended complaint in May 2014.)
