Class Action

Nutella Chocolate-Hazelnut Spread

In September 2014, an appellate court affirmed a district court’s approval of a $2.5 million settlement of a class-action lawsuit against the manufacturer of Nutella, Ferrero USA. The complaint claimed that the company misleadingly marketed Nutella as a healthy and nutritious food when, in reality, it is not. According to the settlement terms, the company agreed to refund class members $4 for each jar purchased (for a maximum of $20). In addition, the company agreed to remove certain advertising and make changes to other marketing materials (e.g., provide consumers with more information about the product’s sugar and fat content).
