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.
