Consumer Action Filed Against Whole Food Market

Consumer Action Filed Against Whole Food Market 2

Following reported allegations that Whole Foods Market (WFM) is knowingly selling dietary products which are significantly contaminated with toxic heavy metals such as lead, cadmium and tungsten, a law firm is now suing the company over the sugar content of its Greek yoghurt product.

Natural News reported that some of Whole Foods Market products contained contaminated levels exceed California Proposition 65 limits by nearly 2000%.

In May of this year, Natural News presented Whole Foods with irrefutable laboratory evidence proving that many of the organic rice protein products sold on their shelves were significantly contaminated with toxic heavy metals. In response to that, Whole Foods has apparently done nothing to halt the practice: to our knowledge, no products have been pulled from shelves, no recalls have been issued, and no public statements warning customers have been issued.

It is astonishing to realize that while Whole Foods will take enormous measures to warn its customers of even a remote possibility of bacterial contamination in a product purchased at its stores, the food retailer remains utterly silent on the issue of known heavy metals contamination in products it sells every single day.

C0nsumer Class Action Filing

A Marlton law firm has filed a consumer lawsuit against Whole Food Market, alleging the grocery chain understates the amount of sugar in its store-brand Greek yogurt.

The proposed class-action suit was filed in Superior Court on behalf of Mark Bilder, identified only as an Atlantic County man who bought the yogurt at Whole Foods’ Marlton store. The chain also has a store in Cherry Hill.

The DeNittis Osefchen law firm filed the suit and a similar one in the Court of Common Pleas in Philadelphia last week.

The suits seek to represent consumers who bought the yogurt from August 2008 to the present at 13 Whole Foods stores in New Jersey and 10 in Pennsylvania. They allege the sugar content in “Whole Foods 365 Everyday Value Plain Greek Yogurt” is more than five times higher than the amount listed on its nutritional label.

The label lists sugar content at two grams per 170 gram serving, but testing has shown 11.4 grams of sugar, according to the suit.”This written, uniform statement of fact on each such “Nutrition Facts” label is false,” the lawsuit claims.
