Purchase Snickers Protein Bars? Bad Products Lawyers


If you've purchased Snickers Protein Bars, you have legal options and may deserve compensation. To reduce its protein manufacturing costs, Snickers adds collagen protein isolate to its Snickers Protein Bars. Collagen protein isolate is not the same quality of protein as whey or even casein; moreover, it is not a complete protein with all of the essential amino acids the body needs. Worse yet, Snickers chooses to add this low quality protein as the predominant protein source in the Snickers Protein Bars.

Despite having knowledge that miscalculating the Daily Value Percentage of protein and under-dosing the protein content is misleading to consumers, Snickers continues to advertise, distribute, label, manufacture, market, and sell the Products in a misleading and deceptive manner in order to increase its sales and maximize its profits. Thus, consumers pay an inflated price for the Products, which deliver less actual and quality protein than they reasonably expect to receive.

Collagen protein isolate is listed under the Products’ Supplement Facts section and has a Protein Digestibility Corrected Amino Acid Score (PDCAAS) of 0. Therefore, even if the protein content was correct, the Daily Value Percentage would be reduced because of the inclusion of a low quality protein such as collagen.


Because the PDCAAS is used to determine “protein quality,” Snickers intentionally excluded the PDCAAS for the Snickers Protein Bars. The Snickers Protein Bars label claims are objectively false because the PDCAAS were not tested properly.



 

Snickers' false, deceptive, and misleading label statements are unlawful under the State Unfair and Deceptive Acts and Practices Statutes and/or Consumer Protection Acts, which prohibit unfair, deceptive or unconscionable acts in the conduct of trade or commerce.

Under the Illinois Food, Drug and Cosmetic Act, Illinois has expressly adopted the federal food labeling requirements as its own and has indicated that “[a] federal regulation automatically adopted pursuant to this Act takes effect in this State on the date it becomes effective as a Federal regulation.” Thus, a violation of federal food labeling laws is an independent violation of Illinois law and actionable.
