What is this lawsuit about?
ANSWER:
This is a case about ConAgra’s advertising certain of its Alexia frozen potato products. The Plaintiffs claim that ConAgra falsely represented in its advertising that certain Alexia frozen potato products are “natural” or “all natural”, when those product contained the ingredient disodium dihydrogen pyrophosphate to retain the color of the potatoes.
ConAgra denies that it falsely advertised its products and denies it did anything wrong. ConAgra denies that the Plaintiffs and the Class have suffered any damages or that they have been harmed in any way. ConAgra, however, has chosen to provide its customers with a cash payment and/or vouchers for free products rather than spending additional money on costly litigation.
What does the Settlement provide?
ANSWER:
If the Settlement is approved, ConAgra will pay up to $3,200,000, consisting of a Cash Settlement Fund of $2,5000,000 as well as a Voucher Settlement Fund of $700,000. Additionally, ConAgra has agreed to the following "For as long as ConAgra chooses to sell the Alexia products, ConAgra will use citric acid or other naturally-sourced compounds in the Alexia Products, rather than disodium dihydrogen pyrophosphate. If the Food and Drug Administration determines in the future that products containing disodium dihydrogen pyrophosphate can be labeled 'natural,' ConAgra reserves the right to use disodium dihydrogen pyrophosphate in the Alexia Products."
