About this Case

TMLG has filed suit against The Quaker Oats Company for deceptive marketing of its Quaker Oats Old-Fashioned, Quaker Oats Quick 1-Minute, and Quaker Steel Cut Oats Sweet Almont Mint products. Quaker Oats markets these oatmeal products as “100% Natural” and “Heart Healthy,” and claims that its oats are grown using “eco-friendly” methods. Plaintiff alleges these claims are false, deceptive, and misleading because Quaker Oats are not “100% Natural,” but instead contain the pesticide glyphosate. Last year the cancer research arm of the World Health Organization declared glyphosate a probable human carcinogen. Glyphosate makes its way into Quaker Oats not simply because it is used as an agricultural weed killer, but because it is sprayed on the oats as a drying agent shortly before harvest.
