Elizabeth DiNardo, Esq.
A dissatisfied Krispy Kreme customer filed a proposed class-action suit against the doughnut chain in Los Angeles federal court on November 9, 2016, accusing the company of false advertising and fraud. Specifically, the complaint accuses Krispy Kreme of using “nutritionally inferior ingredients” to fill its fruit-filled and maple-glazed doughnuts and doughnut holes. Rather than use actual maple syrup, maple sugar, raspberries and blueberries, the company is accused of using corn syrup, sugar and food coloring to mimic the texture and taste of the genuine ingredients. Lead plaintiff, Jason Saidian, alleges that he would not have purchased the products in question had he been aware of the artificial ingredients. Plaintiff is requesting $5 million in damages due to the absence of what he refers to as “premium ingredients.”
The case is: Saidian v. Krispy Kreme Doughnuts, Inc. Case No.: 2:16-cv-08338
