Santa Clara, CA: General Mills is facing a consumer fraud class action lawsuit over allegations its Nature Valley products contain a chemical that could be carcinogenic.
Filed by Yesenia Nuez, a resident of New York, the suit asserts that General Mills promoted its Nature Valley bars as “Made with 100% Natural Whole-Grain Oats.” According to Nuez, these claims are false, because the bars contain oats that are not 100 per cent naturally made. Rather, they contain the chemical glysophate. Glysophate is a potent biocide, a probable carcinogen and a human endocrine disrupter, according to the suit. Nuez claims that as a result, the Nature Valley bars could be causing harm to consumers.
Yesenia Nuez filed the class-action lawsuit, individually and on behalf of all others similarly situated, alleging false, deceptive and misleading advertising practices regarding its Nature Valley products. Nuez is represented by Kim E. Richman of the Richman Law Group in Brooklyn, New York.
The case is U.S. District Court for the Eastern District of New York Case number 1:16-cv-04731-FB-VMS

These bars have been a go-to snack at our house for many years. So disappointed to find out that they may have been contributing to my stomach problems and that those we still have need to be thrown out. Sad that food manufacturers do this to consumers. :(

Have been eating these for a year. Just stopped because my stomach is always messed up. Nauseated, cramps, etc.

I knew there was a reason why they tasted funny. Any processed food is technically not "natural". Count me in.

My son and I have been eating this product for years and to find out that we are eating the Nature Valley bars. More than likely all the cramping and diarrhea we have eaten Nature Valley Bars and it matches up now to why we were sick to our stomachs. Would the manufacturer eat these bars or give them to their own family members ? No they wouldn't. Please add us to your list

This stuff is getting out of control. These companies we have trusted for decades are in fact poisoning us. My entire family of five in my home, plus numerous relatives and friends and co-workers eat these regularly. I'm so disappointed in general mills. Add me to the lawsuit. I will be sharing this to others. Shame on the company.

I have used this product for years and after reading this complaint, I feel that this product may be part of the problems that I am having with my health - stomach pains, diarrhea, diverticulitis. I have several boxes that I just purchased but I will be disposing them as of today.
