She alleges that the strawberry flavored filling is definitely made principally of pears, apples, with only a few strawberries contributing to the toaster pastry’s precise taste and dietary benefits.
Russett additionally factors out the well being advantages of strawberries, claiming that they’re the next grade fruit than pears and apples in her lawsuit. She is in search of damages of $5 million. Russett can also be pushing for Kellogg’s to incorporate extra correct labeling on their Frosted-Strawberry Pop-Tarts field.
“The product’s common or usual name of ‘Frosted-Strawberry Toaster Pastries’ is false, misleading, and deceptive because its filling contains a relatively significant amount of non-strawberry fruit ingredients — pears and apples,” the lawsuit reads.

Kellogg’s has not publicly responded to the lawsuit.
