Bernstein Liebhard LLP Investigates FiberGourmet, Inc. for Potential Violations of Consumer Protection, False Advertising Laws Relating to the Ingredients of its Products

September 09, 2015 (PRLEAP.COM) Business News
September 9, 2015 - The law firm of Bernstein Liebhard LLP announces that it is conducting an investigation of FiberGourmet, Inc. and related companies for potential violations of consumer protection and false advertising laws. The investigation is based on testing and lab results revealing apparent misrepresentations about the ingredients and/or nutritional information for FiberGourmet products. The firm's investigation centers on alleged misrepresentations in the labeling, advertising and marketing of the products regarding the nutritional information and/or the ingredients. These misrepresentations pose unacceptable risks to consumers, especially those with medical conditions that would put them at risk if they consume the mislabeled or falsely advertised products.

The investigation suggests that Fiber Gourmet and others associated with it have engaged in misleading business practices, including intentionally and/or negligently misrepresenting the ingredients and/or the nutritional information of their products. The products are sold under the names "FiberGourmet" and/or "Food Industry Technology." The Fiber Gourmet lines include:

  • ®Thinables crackers and flatbreads
  • Light pasta varieties
  • Light fettuccine noodles product line

  • The alleged misrepresentations include the amount of dietary fiber, calories, fat, and sodium in these products. According to studies and/or lab tests, the products' labels and/or advertisements drastically understate or otherwise misrepresent the calories, fat, and/or sodium in these products, while at the same time drastically overstating or otherwise misrepresenting the amount of dietary fiber in these products.

    If you or someone you know purchased and/or consumed products sold under the name FiberGourmet or Food Industry Technology and believe that you were misled, or if you have any information that could help with this investigation, we would like to speak with you.
