Law firm investigation under way into faked blueberries in name-brand cereals and breads

Monday, November 30, 2015 by

The law firm of Finkenstein Thompson LLP, with offices in San Francisco and Washington D.C., has launched an investigation into the issue of “faked” blueberries being used in cereals and bread products. As reported here on NaturalNews and revealed by the non-profit Consumer Wellness Center (www.ConsumerWellness.org), General Mills manufactures a cereal called “Total Blueberry Pomegranate” which contains no blueberries and no pomegranates.

Many cereals, breads, bagels, pancake mixes and muffins imply they contain real blueberries either by using the word “blueberries” on the front of the box or by showing prominent pictures of blueberries on the product packaging. But the ingredients list reveals many of these products contain no blueberries at all. Instead, they are often made out of artificial coloring chemicals, partially-hydrogenated oils and processed sugars. Instead of delivering the nutrients that people expect to enjoy when they eat real blueberries, these “fake blueberry” products deliver chemicals and processed sugars.

If you have purchased a “fake blueberry” product from Kellogg’s, General Mills or other food company, Finkenstein Thompson LLP wants to hear from you as part of their investigation. You may call (877) 800-1450 or email them at contact@finkelsteinthompson.com

“We believe consumers are likely to be misled into purchasing and eating these products based on the pictures of blueberries or the word ‘blueberries’ on the front of the packaging of these products,” said Rosemary M. Rivas, an attorney with Finkelstein Thompson LLP, which has represented consumers’ rights for over a decade. “Ultimately, we want these deceptive and misleading marketing practices to stop, and enable consumers to make informed decisions when it comes to the food they purchase and eat. We applaud the Consumer Wellness Center’s efforts in investigating and ultimately bringing this issue to the center of national media.”
