Class Action Alleges Barilla Underfills its Pasta Boxes
In a class action lawsuit filed in a New York District Court, consumers allege that Barilla deceptively sells some pasta in the same size boxes even though they contain less pasta. For example, Barilla’s standard macaroni version of elbow pasta is sold with one pound of pasta, while ProteinPLUS elbows contain 14.5 ounces per box and Whole Grain elbows have just 13.25 ounces per box.
