Case Name: Larsen, et al. v. Trader Joe’s Company,
Case No. 3:11-cv-05188-WHO
(District Court for the Northern District of California)
Case Summary:

Traders Joes labeled some of it’s products as natural, when they in fact contained synthetic ingredients such as ascorbic acid, cocoa processed with alkali, sodium acid pyrophosphate, xanthan gum, vegetable monoglycerides and vegetable diglycerides.

Can’t believe those Cookies & Creme weren’t completely natural. I thought natural cream was shelf stable for two years.

    Not happy I only eat healthy products and I bought this cause it was natutal.

  2. J says:

    Great! We purchased some of these products, cookies and apple juice, while taking road trips, and to have in the hotel. It’s hard enough to eat healthy while on the road, I thought I was making good purchases while allowing for a little “bad eating” on the trip.

  3. D Caudill says:

    Is that 10 each product or 10 total purchases? Thank you.

    ADMIN – Hi D,

    The limit is 10 total purchases. (You can claim more than 10 if you have proof of purchase)

  4. Capri Williamson says:

    I bought this thinking I was eating healthy trying to maintain a healthy lifestyle and look here this is a fraud omg…I have to be more careful…..I purchase all these products no wonder they were so delicious….

  5. William M Buttlicker says:

    No one cares if any of you bought this item.

  6. Seth says:

    Bought these items thinking they were made from natural products only, very disappointed to find out they are not.

  7. Bruce says:

    Wow – can we not even trust health labels anymore? I buy a ton from Trader Joes – thinking my purchases over now; before I make them – with regards to health content.

  8. J. Krusper says:

    Seems like you can’t trust anyone but yourself the days anymore. You think that a large company like Trader Joes would be trustworthy and then there is something like this happening and you find that you no longer can trust.

  9. Sherri says:

    When do we get paid for anything

  10. large Marge says:

    Well I for one am relieved to find out that stuff wasn’t natural. I was really worried about my taste buds wondering why it all tasted so dang delicious. Ty TJ’s!

  11. whatev says:

    Do any of you morons even have the faintest idea of what these non-“natural” ingredients actually are or how safe/unsafe they are? I bet not.

  12. sharonconner says:

    Wrote me said we had 5 people claim at the same resident

  13. jennell says:

    wrote me and ask for proof of my address and I did

  14. tasha says:

    When will they start sending out settlement checks o

  15. Mike says:

    This one has also been appealed, so it may take more time.

  16. Samuel Clendenin says:

    I was very disappointed when I found out that these were not all natural!

  17. Johnny Sandoval says:

    And I thought these were healthy for you.

  18. Linda sullivan says:

    I have bought these products several times. Thinking they were a natural product however I now know better

  19. Tifini Ferrara says:

    I enjoy Trader Joe’s very much.I like to believe they did not intentionally sell these items ignoring the consumers trust in the products that Trader Joe’s has represented. I think i am in denial. Anyhow, at leaherst they forced to be accountable. I will still support Trader Joe’s, I am sure we all have purchased items thinking that they are organic or etc…..but in the end someone somewhere needed to make some money and sold out and lied, As usual. Do not sell out like others (Sprouts) . keep it simple and honest, please. sorry about the novel.

  20. Karen says:

    I’m disappointed because I go to trader joes 3 times a week and buy the products listed in the lawsuit. I’m just hearing of this now after the deadline has passed. How did they determine who is part of the class action and how were potential claimants contacted?? Did those who participated in the class action find out be chance, pure luck??? I don’t think its fair to those who were not notified but purchased the products regularly. They could have notified me through my credit card!

  21. kathryn porter says:

    will will they start sending out checks

    • gio says:

      No.
      they filed two appeals due this month. good luck
      any check received from class action will just make prices go up. if you all think to continue to go to stores for shopping and have stable prices stop following nonsense class actions, just a money maker for lawyers, and the money they get off coarse they are able to pay high prices. Most of the country has average salary.
