In , two California residents filed a class action lawsuit against Kraft Foods for claiming certain products are healthy when in fact they contain unhealthy trans fat.
Kraft denied any wrongdoing, saying all packaging claims are true and legal. As of June , the case is still ongoing. Teddy Grahams , varieties of Ritz Crackers , Honey Maid Grahams, Premium Saltines, Ginger Snaps, and Vegetable Thins all contain artificial trans fat, and Kraft presents these products as healthy with phrases like "wholesome choice", "sensible snacking", and "made with real vegetables". The lawsuit cites current scientific consensus on the dangerous health effects of trans fat, which causes coronary heart disease  and has been linked to type 2 diabetes  and some forms of cancer.
Based on the trans fat content and other unhealthy ingredients in Kraft products, the lawsuit makes several arguments: . Kraft denies any wrongdoing. Kraft's response briefs emphasize that the challenged claims are technically true. For example, Vegetable Thins are "made with real vegetables", and Kraft argues that this true statement cannot be called misleading. Regarding several packaging claims, Kraft argues that they are not factual statements that can be proven true or false. For example, Kraft argues that the word "wholesome" is subjective and vague.
Promotional statements that are too vague to prove or disprove are called puffery and are not actionable under the law. Kraft argues that "wholesome", "sensible", and "smart" are all puffery and therefore cannot be found misleading or deceitful. The current lawsuit is not the first time Kraft has been criticized for the trans fat in their products.
