Calorie-Counters Duped by Costa Mesa-based Galeos Salad Dressing May Be Entitled to a Full Refund
​Those who purchased a bottle of Galeos Salad Dressing got more than they asked for. Like love handles and a double chin.  
 
In a real-life version of the Seinfeld frozen yogurt episode, the Costa Mesa-based manufacturer was sued last year for allegedly misstating nutrition facts. An independent laboratory found that the company's miso caesar salad dressing contained nearly 10 times the calories and fat content that it listed on its label, shocking weight watchers who'd been devouring the stuff ever since it was plugged by Jillian Michaels and contestants on The Biggest Loser.

Galeos denies the claims and contends that the labels were and are accurate, but a settlement has been reached in the case, and those who purchased Galeos salad dressings from Nov. 29, 2006 to May 3, 2011 can get their money back. Those with proof of purchase can get a full refund, and those without may still be able to get the retail value of three bottles, which is about $10.50. More details here
