Garden Veggie Straws claim to have less fat than potato chips, but a lawsuit in federal court against the snack’s maker contends there’s something else Veggie Straws has less of — vegetables.
Two plaintiffs are seeking class action status on behalf of everyone who has purchased Veggie Straws in the last six years.
They allege that the snack contains potato starch and flour, corn starch, tomato paste, and spinach powder.
The suit seeks monetary relief and an injunction against the so-called misleading advertising of Veggie Straws.
Until this ridiculous lawsuit is heard in court, we won’t know if the plaintiff’s case can celery the judge on the merits or if the judge will tell them to … beat it.
