Plaintiffs Allege Campbell’s “No Preservatives” Soups Contain Chemical Preservatives
Campbell Soup Co. faces a putative class action alleging that it deceptively markets its soups as having “No Preservatives Added” or being “Made With Patience, Not Preservatives” despite containing citric acid, ascorbic acid or other preservatives. Cabrega v. Campbell Soup Co., No. 18-3827 (E.D.N.Y., filed July 2, 2018). The complaint alleges that such statements violate consumer-protection statutes nationwide and are common law fraud. The plaintiffs seek class certification, damages, corrective advertising, injunctive relief and attorney’s fees.
