Washington, DC: Consumers may have filed their own Gerber Good Start lawsuits but back in 2014, it was the US Federal Trade Commission (FTC) that initially filed suit against the baby food maker, alleging the company made unsubstantiated claims about the health benefits of Gerber Good Start Gentle baby formula.
Los Angeles, CA: Consumers who filed a lawsuit against Gerber over claims it made in marketing its Good Start baby formula were handed a small victory when the judge in the suit tentatively certified the lawsuit as a class action. The Gerber Good Start lawsuit alleges consumers were misled into buying the baby formula by false claims made in the company’s marketing of the product. Gerber also faces a different lawsuit alleging the company violated the Unlawful Trade Practices Act in its marketing of Gerber Graduate Puffs.
Newark, NJ: As the Gerber Good Start Class Action brought by plaintiff Oula Zakaria continues to roll toward ultimate certification, it’s useful to look back 18 months to October 2014, when the US Federal Trade Commission (FTC) launched a Gerber Consumer Fraud Lawsuit against the venerable manufacturer over claims made in its marketing and labeling.
Los Angeles, CA: A plaintiff who took issue with alleged misrepresentation by a Nestle SA subsidiary over its Gerber Good Start Gentle line of products has herself managed a good start to her proposed class-action baby formula lawsuit after a judge this week gave tentative approval to certification of the class.
Portland, OR: While Gerber already faces a lawsuit concerning its Good Start baby food, a new lawsuit has been filed against Gerber, this time focused on its Graduate Puffs. The lawsuit claims Gerber misled consumers into buying Graduate Puffs by including fruits and vegetables in the label that do not actually exist in the product. This lawsuit is separate from the Good Start lawsuit, which alleges Gerber misled consumers into thinking its baby food could prevent allergies in infants despite a lack of data to back up that claim.
San Francisco, CA: In an environment overrun with mistrust and misleading information, consumers can be forgiven for both their wariness and weariness over unsubstantiated claims. Until recently, one product that consumers long held as beyond reproach has been baby food and baby formula. However, in recent months consumers have become wary over even that bastion of trust. To wit, Gerber Good Start Gentle may not be the good start many consumers have come to expect, given an apparent realization that claims of protection against the development of allergies have little grounding in truth.
Los Angeles, CA: We have all had or overheard the conversations: “Why is it that so many kids have allergies today? Back when I was a kid, we all played outside, ate dirt and didn’t have a care in the world…” Now, children go to allergists, take various medications, and so on. Thus, one can imagine the relief that a new parent might feel when picking up a can of Gerber Good Start Gentle and noting on the product label that the infant formula could prevent the onset of allergies.
Porter Ranch, CA: A lawsuit has been filed against Gerber, alleging the company falsely marketed its Good Start Gentle infant formula. The lawsuit, which was filed on behalf of Oula Zakaria and seeks class-action status, alleges that not only did Gerber illegally market Good Start Gentle infant formula as reducing the risk of food allergies and skin problems, it also falsely represented to consumers that the product was endorsed by the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA).
