Wolf Haldenstein Files Class Action Against Baby Food Maker Hain Celestial Group for Potentially Dangerous Earth’s Best Rice Cereal

Wolf Haldenstein filed a class action complaint in the United States District Court for the Eastern District of New York against the Hain Celestial Group for deceptive marketing practices concerning its Earth’s Best rice cereal.  As alleged in the complaint, Earth’s Best prominently advertises its rice cereal as wholesome, safe food to feed to infants and small children.  In reality, Earth’s Best rice cereal contains high levels of arsenic – higher, in fact, than those allowed by the FDA.  As a result, it is alleged that Earth’s Best should not be legally sold within the United States, and that Earth’s Best’s failure to disclose that material fact violates state and common law.

The action is currently pending on behalf of consumers in the United States and its territories who purchased Earth’s Best rice cereal.
