  • I know how she can avoid these "toxic" pizzas: read the ingredients before buying something and don't buy anything you find objectionable! It's really that easy! It's not as if they were hiding the fact that trans fats were in the food.  She should be thrown out of court immediately and forced to pay the legal fees for the companies for being simply that stupid.

    We will have none of that kind of talk here!

  • But that pizza is frivolicious
  • As long as it was disclosed on the nutritional info, I don't really see how they have a case.
  • Well, here is the nutritional info from the website for the BBQ Chicken pizza:

    It reports no trans fat.  This may be the issue at hand.
    Of course, if it has 0.3gm of trans fat and the FDA allows it to be rounded down to zero, I still don't really think they have a case.
  • this is why we can't have nice things.
  • Weston said the suit seeks all monies Nestle has ever made from frozenpizzas.

    Good luck with that.
  • To be fair, subby, this is a class-action suit, so it's not like she's expecting to get 5 million to herself.  And if this stupid-ass suit actually does win the lawyers will take half before the any other claimants get their check for five dollars and sixty-two cents.

    Anyway, this article makes it seem like a slam dunk at first saying PHVO is "banned worldwide".  Poor choice of words considering that later in the article it specifically states that only a few jurisdictions in the U.S. have banned it, and only in restaurants. 

    Even the complaint itself says "banned in many parts of the world."  That does NOT mean "banned worldwide."

    Nestle is right to say that they're in compliance with regulations.  I didn't feel like reading the entire 23 page complaint, but I'm guessing this case doesn't have much merit at all, and that it's just enough worth the risk for the lawyers to give it a shot. They could probably give less than two shiats about Katie Simpson and her Snowflakes, et al.
  • Partially hydrogenated vegetable oil would be listed in the ingredients. She had the necessary information. It isn't the company's fault that the FDA has asinine regulations regarding trans fat labeling. This woman is just looking for a payday.

    Does the list of ingredients include the phrase "partially hydrogenated?"

    Their pepperoni pizza has, and lists trans fat on the nutritional info.
  • I want your skull: Their pepperoni pizza has, and lists trans fat on the nutritional info.


    It sure does.  Which is kind of a blow to the plaintiff here, as I can't see how CPK can be liable for potential damages for a food product that is legal to sell and is explicit on the packaging.
  • Whatever the outcome, the Sicilian style California Pizza must remain available to consumers.
  • The most frequent of Ms. Simpson's purchases of Nestle Trans Fat Pizzas were at the Target

    Well, there's your problem.
  • In 2008, California became the first state to ban all restaurant food with artificial trans fat, a law affecting about 88,000 eating establishments, the suit said.

    "Trans fats now may not be served in California's schools or restaurants in an amount greater than half a gram per serving," the suit says.


    Another blow to the plaintiff is that the pepperoni pizza adheres to the half a gram per serving rule that restaurants and schools adhere to.
  • I notice that these pizzas seem to contain gluten.

    What kind of monster feeds glutenated food to their CHILDREN??? Does she want her kids to catch autism???
  • I know when seeking out healthy food I always think "frozen pizza."
  • fruitloop: The most frequent of Ms. Simpson's purchases of Nestle Trans Fat Pizzas were at the Target

    Well, there's your problem.


    I'm not sure I'd buy a Nestle Trans Fat Pizza, you just don't know what is in it.


    Doesn't matter.  She's from California.  Liberal bastion, therefore she's not required to have any personal responsibility.
  • Oh.  I almost forgot.


    Hooootttt Poccckkkeeetttt.

    Yep. If they were mislabeling it, that would be one thing. They're following the law here, so I just don't see how she has a case.
  • "The most frequent of Ms. Simpson's purchases of Nestle Trans Fat Pizzas were at the Target located at 2911 Jamacha Road" near Cuyamaca College in Rancho San Diego, said the suit

    Help yourself, help yourself
    Help yourself to Stouffer's TRANS FAT PIZZA
