Case Name: Larsen, et al. v. Trader Joe’s Company,
Case No. 3:11-cv-05188-WHO
(District Court for the Northern District of California)
Case Summary: Traders Joes labeled some of it’s products as natural, when they in fact contained synthetic ingredients such as ascorbic acid, cocoa processed with alkali, sodium acid pyrophosphate, xanthan gum, vegetable monoglycerides and vegetable diglycerides.

Can’t believe those Cookies & Creme weren’t completely natural. I thought natural cream was shelf stable for two years.
