Purchasers of Kashi Food Products May be Affected by Class Action Lawsuit
The United States District Court for the Southern District of California has certified two Classes of California residents who purchased Kashi food products in California allegedly mislabeled as being “All Natural” or containing “Nothing Artificial.”
Feinstein Doyle Payne & Kravec, LLC Partner
Joe Kravec serves as Co-Lead Counsel in the Kashi Food Products lawsuit.
The certified “Nothing Artificial” Class involves claims that Kashi misbranded certain food products by labeling those products as containing “Nothing Artificial” despite containing one or more of the following artificial ingredients: Pyridoxine Hydrochloride, Alpha-Tocopherol Acetate, or Hexane-Processed Soy Ingredients.
The certified “All Natural” Class involves claims that Kashi misbranded certain food products by labeling those products as being “All Natural” despite containing one or more of the following ingredients: Pyridoxine Hydrochloride, Calcium Pantothenate, or Hexane-Processed Soy Ingredients.
The Court excludes purchasers who bought the Nothing Artificial Products or the All Natural Products for resale and anyone with a conflict of interest.

If you are a California resident who purchased Kashi food products in California, you have a choice whether to stay in the Kashi Food Products Classes, and you must decide this now. To stay in the Classes, you do not have to do anything. If money or benefits are obtained, notice will be publicized about how members of the Classes can ask for a share of the money. You will be legally bound by all orders and judgments of the Court, and you won’t be able to sue, or continue to sue about the legal claims in that case.
If you do not wish to remain in either of the Classes, you may exclude yourself by sending a letter or completing an Kashi Exclusion Form and mailing it to the following address:
Astiana Claims Administrator
P.O. Box 43034
Providence, RI 02940-3034
If you exclude yourself from the Classes, you cannot get any of the money or benefits from the lawsuit if any are awarded, but you will keep any rights to sue about these claims and will not be bound by any orders or judgments in that case.
The exclusion form or your letter must be postmarked by January 27, 2014, and you must say that you want to be excluded from Astiana, et al. v. Kashi Company. You must also include your name, address and telephone number.
Please note that Kashi denies that it did anything wrong and asserts that its labels were truthful and consistent with the law. The Court has not decided whether the plaintiffs or defendant is right. A trial is set to begin on February 11, 2014.
