Just recently, New-York-based Chobani Inc. wouldn’t have sucked in the attention of attorneys in a class-action lawsuit.
With over a billion dollars in sales expected in 2014, the Greek yogurt firm shook up the industry while bringing up the plaintiff’s lawyers to the surface.
A New York law firm in Manhattan recently filed a lawsuit against Chobani Inc., alleging the yogurt manufacturer of tricking buyers into thinking their products are Greek while utilizing terms on the label that display “false nutrition content.”
The lawsuits were filed last Thursday in a Brooklyn federal court by Lee Litigation Group PLLC, who are representing two New York residents, one from Queens and another from Westchester County.
The complaint indicates that Chobani Inc. marketed their products as “Greek” when there’s absolutely nothing Greek about their yogurt line. The complaint continues by indicating that none of their yogurt products are produced or manufactured in Greece or even made by a Greek citizen.
Chobani Inc. marketed themselves as the top Greek yogurt in the United States.
