WhiteWave Foods Asks Court To Dismiss Evaporated Cane Juice Lawsuit In California

August 8, 2013: 12:00 AM EST
WhiteWave Foods filed a motion to dismiss the lawsuit filed in California by plaintiffs Alex Ang and Kevin Avoy alleging consumers are being misled by food companies’ use of the term “evaporated cane juice” to describe dried sugar cane syrup. The Colorado-based food company, which sells the Horizon Organic brand of dairy products and the Silk brand of almond- and soy-based products, said the lawsuit is precluded by a settlement deal in Florida concerning an almost identical lawsuit. Ang and  Avoy were both members of the class bound by the $800,000 settlement deal in Florida, the company added.
