Beyond Meat Class Action Given Green Light from Federal District Court Judge in Illinois
On February 20, 2024, Judge Sara L. Ellis of the Northern District of Illinois denied a motion brought by Beyond Meat to dismiss our consolidated class action complaint accusing the plant-based company of falsely marketing its products, specifically misstating the amount of protein in the products. The court found that “Plaintiffs’ allegations, bolstered by the third-party testing results summarized in the consolidated complaint, plausibly suggest that Beyond Meat has misrepresented the amount of protein in its products….”
Beth Fegan said of the decision, “Judge Ellis’s decision is a great win for consumers and those who brought the suit to set the record straight regarding the true quality of Beyond Meat’s products, and provide relief to consumers who took them at their word in what we believe to be highly deceptive marketing.”Learn More
