Blue Diamond to pay $2.6 million for misleading use of the word 'vanilla'
Blue Diamond Growers will pay $2.6 million to settle a class-action lawsuit for its allegedly misleading use of the word “vanilla” to describe the flavor of its Almond Breeze yogurt.
Seven consumers in New York state file the lawsuit.
The settlement will give consumers who have proof of purchase coupons for a dollar off the product; and 50 cents for those without proof of purchase.
The lawsuits usually center on whether the use of “vanilla” as a descriptor in products that don’t use actual vanilla beans is deceptive.
