Fruit Roll-Ups not so healthy?

Payton McCure, a woman from New York has filed a lawsuit against General Mills, claiming that the food giant mislead consumers about the nutritional and high qualities of its Fruit Roll-Ups and other fruit snacks popular with children. According to a complaint filed in Manhattan Federal Court Tuesday:

“Healthful claims are misleading since the products fail to disclose they contain a highly unhealthy, non-nutritious ingredient known as partially hydrogenated oil.”

The complaint seeks class-action status on behalf of purchasers of the fruit snacks, compensatory and punitive damages, and other remedies. However a spokeswoman from General Mills on the other hand is saying that the company has not been served a lawsuit and refuses to comment on the matter.
