, as you may remember. And now, it's happening with Yogurtland.
An L.A. law firm has announced via this press release that they have filed a class action lawsuit against the chain and “on behalf of all purchasers of a certain so-called 'frozen yogurt' product made and/or marketed by Yogurtland International, LLC (“Yogurtland”)”
“Yogurtland's product does not meet the California manufacturing standards for “frozen yogurt.” Also, Yogurtland does not list the ingredients in each of the products served and failed to provide its ingredients upon inquiry. Moreover, Yogurtland has illegal and unsanitary business practices. By and through their staff's own admission, Yogurtland, in violation of California law, reclaims and reuses product by either (1) emptying their product from the soft-serve machines and reusing old product the next morning or (2) leaving product in the soft-serve machines overnight for reuse the next day. Such practices create potential health hazards to customers. So that no other consumers are similarly deceived, Plaintiff has initiated this lawsuit to compel Yogurtland to disclose to the public that they are not selling frozen yogurt in violation of California law.“
