What is the Dove Fruit Bowl Settlement About?

A $4,303,125 Class Action Lawsuit has been settled with Dole over assertions that Dole advertised, marketed, and sold their fruit bowl products, claiming it is contained "in 100% juice" or only "in 100% fruit juice," when the fruit products contained trace amounts of ascorbic acid and/or citric acid, or other ingredients.

Dole did not accept that the class action lawsuit's allegations were valid, stating that their fruit bowl products have consistently been appropriately marketed and labeled, as consumers understand that "in 100% juice" refers to the packaging medium, distinguishing the Fruit from similar products packaged in syrup, gel, or water, for example. Dole maintains that this phrase does not provide an exhaustive statement of the product's ingredients. As of now, the Court has not determined whether the class action lawsuit or Dole is correct.
