January 7, 2019- Kohn, Swift & Graf is currently investigating numerous companies for deceptive “white chocolate” labeling.
what is really in your white chocolate products?
Several manufacturers face allegations that their white chocolate products do not, in fact, meet the FDA’s definition for the confection. To be considered “white chocolate”, the FDA requires that the product contain 20% cocoa butter, 14% milk solids, and 5% milk fat.
Several lawsuits maintain that products including Starbucks’ espresso drinks, Clif and Luna bars, Nuts ‘N More spreads, fail to meet these FDA standards. Real white chocolate’s flavor is derived from cocoa butter and cacao fat; however, these products allegedly contain no cocoa butter and/or no milk fat.
This deceptive labeling has potentially misled consumers into purchasing an overpriced and inferior product.
