Fruit Roll-Ups Sued For Allegedly Not Actually Being Healthy

A Brooklyn, NY woman is suing General Mills for allegedly misleading consumers about Fruit Roll-Ups. She claims they are not quite as healthful as the packaging would like you to believe because they contain partially hydrogenated oil.

Use of the oil in Fruit Roll-Ups, Fruit by the Foot and Fruit Gushers makes the marketing message that fruit snacks are “nutritious” “false and misleading,” according to the lawsuit.

The complaint seeks class action status, says Reuters.
