A $3.95-million settlement was reached by River North Foods Inc. over allegations that certain “All-Natural” products they sell are not all natural and contain artificial ingredients and chemicals. River North Food Brands involved in this settlement Include Frontera and Salpica.
The lawsuit alleged that the packaging on certain Frontera and Salpica products were false claiming to be “all natural” and deceptively labeled with the sugar labeled as “evaporated cane juice”. The lawsuit stated, “The [Federal Trade Commission] recently made clear that ‘all-natural’ or ‘100% natural’ mean just that. If you advertise your product as ‘all-natural’ or ‘100% natural’ and it contains artificial ingredients or chemicals, now is the natural time for a compliance check.”
