Case Name

Townsend v. Blue Diamond Growers,
Case No. CV 14-958-4
Circuit Court of Washington County, Arkansas

Case Summary

This lawsuit addressed information in the packaging leading the consumer to believe that the product was all natural. The lawsuit specifically claimed that the packaging and advertising of certain Blue Diamond Growers Almond Breeze and Nut Thins Products was inaccurate in that it led purchasers to believe that the Products were “All Natural” or “Natural,” when in fact they included one or more synthetic ingredients. The lawsuit also challenged Blue Diamond Growers’ use of the ingredient statement “evaporated cane juice” and the use of the American Heart Association’s “heart check-mark” symbol on certain of its Almond Breeze Products. The lawsuit also claimed that Blue Diamond Growers’ Almond Breeze products were misleadingly advertised as containing a significant amount of almonds and as being heart healthy. Blue Diamond Growers’ stands by its advertising and denies it did anything wrong.

  7. George Reeve says:

    I have been eating this product for years and was very surprised and disappointed to find out I had been duped into believing it was all natural. After my heart attack in 2011 I try to eat healthy, then in 2015 I was diagnosed as having severe swallowing disorder called Barrett Syndrome & have laryngospasms. So I try to read labels carefully, if a product deceives it customers it can be a life or death situation.

  12. Peggie says:

    I felt I was lied to. When I buy a product to serve to friends and family I want to trust and rely on their integrity

  13. Angela Taylor says:

    I thought if a product was endorsed by the American Heart Association they had investigated it first to make sure the claims made by the manufacturer were truthful. Seems misleading to me.

  20. Robin Parks says:

    I believe I deserve compensation. I have been buying this product thinking it was all natural which obviously is not and that’s very misleading.

  21. Marilou Abruscato says:

    I bought these all the time sometimes just on the fly paying cash and not having a receipt. Now to find out that they were not as stated is very upsetting. Most people do not save grocery receipts or have proofs of purchase so far after the fact.

  22. Amy Cheek says:

    These were my favorite snacks and i didnt feel guilty for eating them until my friend told me different i read the pack its just a shame i spent my hard earned cash i do not have a receipt i hope i can still be compensated

  25. Manoucheka dixon says:

    This is crazy. I’ve been eating this as part of my natural foods to be healthy. I’ve been to the hospital to many times do to my health issues so I decided 4 years ago to eat healthier so I started eating blue diamond almond breeze & & nut thins as part of my snack before & sometimes after lunch. That’s just not right. Just when you think you’re eating natural healthy foods you get lied to. #Sad
